Higher Ground’s Mission

Our mission is to provide tools for transformational change to people affected by severe addiction.
In doing so we aim to support recovery for individuals and whānau and to
reduce the harm that alcohol and other
drug addiction causes in communities and society as a whole.

We offer a high quality, culturally responsive, programme based on a therapeutic community model.

Our Programmes

We provide rehabilitation programmes that are based on 12 Step recovery principles & evidence based therapies.

We believe the spiritual dimensions of honesty, open mindedness, willingness, faith, hope, respect and generosity are the foundations of healing.

We emphasise that clients need to take individual responsibility for their recovery.


Clients are assessed prior to admission. This is to see whether Higher Ground is best suited for the client’s needs.

These assessments usually take around 90 minutes. Support people are welcome at assessments.
