KO WAI TĀTOU? WHO ARE WE?
Te Kāika Community-Based Alcohol and Other Drug and Addictions Service.
Te Kaika Community-Based Alcohol and Other Drug and Addictions Service is located at Te Whare, 15 A Playfair Street, Caversham, Dunedin which is across the road from our main hub on 25 College Street.
We offer the provision of alcohol and other drug addictions services within/alongside an integrated site of health, social and educational services (Te Kāika) in Dunedin for all people.
Our services are designed and delivered from a Te Ao Māori worldview and include one to one counselling and whanau support.
Our approach is inclusionary harm reduction within Māori centred models of relational care for tāngata whaiora with moderate to severe substance use issues and their whanau. We are not a crisis intervention centre.
Whānau wellbeing is enhanced through an integrated workforce, whakawhanungatanga and whakapapa connection. We support whanau to identify resiliency and protective factors that enhance their wellbeing.
Our range of roles are unique to Kaupapa Māori and include kaimahi who have lived experience, are clinically competent and culturally safe.
The services are at no cost and are available from 9am – 4pm Monday – Friday.
