Youth Alcohol and Other Drug Counselling and Mental Health Services in Southland


We can meet you wherever you are. All ADL services are funded by the District Health Board or the Ministry of Social Development which makes it FREE for you!
Even if you are not sure that this is for you, come along to meet us and check us out.


It can be hard sometimes to know which service would fit you / your friend / family member best so give us a call to discuss potential referrals. If we think there is another service that would be a better fit for you we can help to put you in touch with them.
