The Afternoon or Evening Programme is a 12-week alternative to traditional outpatient treatment for those who desire recovery but are not able to step away from the responsibilities of their daily lives.
Finding the best drink driving programme can be overwhelming if you are not sure what to look for. With multiple options available online, narrowing down your search is often a daunting task.

Drug and substance addiction can destabilize and destroy the lives of those affected. Whether it’s the person with a drug use disorder or people close to him, living with an addiction can be devastating.
Alcoholic in recovery
Having suffered from a long history of Alcoholism, I finally admitted I was powerless and booked myself in for a 30 day programme at The Retreat NZ in 2015. I spent my time at The Retreat with a small group of like minded people who were beginning their recovery journey too, and who had stories similar to my own. It was immense relief to be able to discuss my struggles with drinking with people who had first hand experience of my disease and understood it’s destructive nature.
“P” addict in recovery
I knew it was important to put time and patience into my recovery and it took time to become familiar with this new way of life. Every step of the way The Retreat has helped and supported me with everything I have done. From a court case, to regaining my confidence, attending meetings regularly, getting a sponsor, to helping others, they have helped me go from a person with no direction to a well person who is achieving their goals one day at a time.
Mother of alcoholic in recovery
I first came to a Family Meeting on a Sunday at The Retreat in early May this year. Initially, I was struck at how similar other families’ stories were to my own – it was a revelation to realise just how whole families around the alcoholic or drug user become very sick themselves, particularly with their spirituality and thinking. I began to see how subtle and patient the process is. Over time a new normal is created so it is hard to see the problem.
We welcome guests throughout the country into a safe and caring environment led by highly qualified professionals and volunteers whose drinking, drug or other substance abuse problem has been solved.
