Waikato DHB - Youth Intact
Youth INtact is Waikato's main alcohol and other drug service providing holistic support for rangatahi aged 12-19. Our team can talk to you about how you can support rangatahi to reach their full potential. The free one-to-one counselling and therapy helps rangatahi build on their strenghts. This is achieved through an assessment and a personalised, integrated treatment plan which aims to address not only the identified substance abuse issues but also any underlying contributing factors such as whanau instability, gender identity confusion, mental health concerns, education or learning difficulties, youth offending or care and protection risk factors. Our values include, concern (ngaakau aroha), love (aroha), responsibility (haepapa), honesty (pono), and trust (tiakitanga). These values drive our strategic goals and enable us to provide holistic services. We believe success comes when our clients can better face the real world, reach into their potential, help find their passion, trust themselves, gain a sense of leadership, and become part of the community. Come see us about how we might be able to help rangatahi in your life and play some challenging games through alcohol simulation goggles!
