Methamphetamine Help Team
What do we do?
The service is a phone counselling service with the ability to offer some face to face appointments in Christchurch.
We are available for anyone who is experiencing a problem related to methamphetamine – those that use and those who have concerns regarding someone else’s use. Service users are assigned their own Counsellor and can be supported at any stage of their journey.
The MHT is staffed by an experienced team of AOD Counsellors. The service has been established for over 5 years and has proved to be very popular with service users due to the high level of confidentiality it offers alongside very flexible delivery options.
