Need help now?

Since we started in 1980, Odyssey has helped thousands of New Zealanders to overcome alcohol, drug and gambling addiction problems. We are a not-for-profit organisation and our focus is helping people to turn their lives around.

We work closely with local communities, schools and health organisations. They respect us for our caring approach and single-minded devotion to achieving good outcomes for those who come to us for help.

With a collective of more than 140 specially-trained professionals, we run seven treatment centres and a variety of community programmes in the Auckland region and Whangarei. The breadth of knowledge and experience of our team allows us to offer a wide range of programmes and services that are tuned to the needs of the people we help.



We are leaders in changing lives – we provide the best possible therapeutic care to the maximum possible number of clients.


Through our skills, our knowledge and our enthusiasm we connect to help people meet challenges of addiction - encouraging them to become all they can be.


All the members of the community share the responsibilities of encouraging positive change,  promoting self development, and supporting everyone else.
