Alcohol & Drug Information - Southland

A wide range of secondary specialist mental health and alcohol and drug services and resources are available to young people and adults in Southland. These services are delivered by the Southern DHB’s Drug and Alcohol Specialist Service and a range of other contracted providers (Non-Government Organisations) who deliver specialist services in the community.

SOUTHLAND ALCOHOL AND DRUG MANAGERS GROUP (SADMG)

To support and improve the sector's effectiveness, in 2008 the Southland Alcohol and Drug Managers Group (SADMG) was formed.

The group also plans and holds four Drug and Alcohol Forums in Southland each year. The Forums are open for anyone to attend and provide the opportunity for people to receive updates on local and national alcohol and drug issues and to be kept informed about local services and projects and initiatives.
