ADANZ provides expert information and policy advice, early intervention and support services to the people of New Zealand. ADANZ manages the Alcohol Drug Helpline, compiles the national Addictions Treatment Directory and delivers a range of services led and developed by people who have previously used addiction treatment services.
We are delighted to announce that ADANZ has moved into new premises following the loss of access to our previous building following the February earthquake. All of our contact details remain the same. To get in touch please go to the Contact Us section of the website.
