Pursue the wealth of health

Open groups create a space of papa kainga ahi kā, a pā (a place where you feel connected and comfortable) to strengthen your hauora. The groups contribute towards stregthening your Taha Wairua (Spiritual), Taha Tinana (Physical), Taha Whānau (Family and Social) and Taha Hinengaro (Mental and Emotional) wellbeing.

Accessing these can support you to understand your behaviours around alcohol and drug use, keeping your whānau safe, and strengthening your well-being. No referral is required!

Groups are designed to strengthen your hauora and aim to:

  • Declutter your headspace

  • Build your connections within hapori

  • Strengthen your Tinana

  • Support practical everyday living

After a few sessions, you might be ready to address the heavy stuff and request a referral to a programme, or you may find you have learned other ways to gain an understanding of the behaviours that are causing negativity in your life.

We offer a range of open groups to suit everyone. Check out the group descriptions below to find out more about specific groups, or head straight to our events page to see what's coming up next.
