How Can We Help?

We run a range of community and residential programs across New South Wales, helping thousands of people each year deal with alcohol and drug problems and move forward in life.

All of our services are delivered professionally, and in confidence. Our support is free, though our residential services incur a small charge.

Check out our program areas below and see if you can find one that suits your needs. If not, give us a call on 1300 727 957 and we can discuss how we can best help out.

It’s not possible for everyone to reach our services due to a number of factors. You may live too far away, transport may be an issue or you may feel more comfortable meeting in a location where you feel safe and at home. Our outreach services mean we can come to you.
