Christchurch Central Service (CCS) – AOD (Alcohol And Other Drug) Coordination
What we do
A coordination and resource centre for alcohol and drug issues. A key role of this service is to facilitate access to the Canterbury AOD treatment services. The service provides screening and assessment to help link the person win with the appropriate AOD service.
This includes access to Residential services, Day Programs, Individual Counselling and Group Work. The service has social workers, AOD counselors, nurses, peer support workers and psychologist on the team.
Tūhauora's collaboration of NGOs, Community and Specialist Services has exceeded expectations and has seen a 25 percent increase in referrals in the eighteen-months since its inception, resulting in the formal opening of new expanded premises in April 2018.
CCS accepts self-referrals, referrals from GP's and other community agencies via post, fax, and email.
The primary initial process normally is done via phone although a face to face appointment can be arranged.
