Alcohol & Drug Community Workers


The Mission’s Alcohol & Drug Community Workers support clients preparing for admission to Elm Street and provide ongoing support after they leave. They assist clients, partners, family and friends through all phases of recovery – and help identify ways of reducing the stress that accompanies major changes in behaviour and new living situations.


Detox was a turning point for me and my family. Recently, I brought my kids in to see the [Alcohol & Drug Community Workers] staff. They knew some of them ‘cos they’d brought food and toys out home so I wouldn’t worry so much away from them.

To speak with an Alcohol & Drug Community Worker, phone 09 303 3016 between 9am – 5pm, or email us.
