Te Atea Marino

About this service

Te Ātea Marino is a kaupapa Māori service for people whose use of alcohol and/or other drugs has caused them significant problems in their life. We serve Māori (or people with strong Māori connections) aged 13 upwards.

We are a regional service covering Waitemata DHB, Auckland DHB and Counties Manukau DHB. We are part of Whītiki Maurea, a Waitemata DHB kaupapa Māori mental health and addictions service, and so have easy access to mental health specialists as well as a cultural team and kaumātua.

We offer high quality brief interventions, usually in a group programme at our base. Whānau are encouraged to attend. We can offer additional 1:1 support or whānau work, and can work offsite if the need arises. We also work in partnership with other agencies to provide services at schools, marae, probation and prisons.

All of our interactions with tangata whai i te ora and their whānau are based in our values and expressed according to tikanga. We use karakia, pōwhiri, mihimihi, whakawhanaunga, and te reo as part of our processes, all at a level the person is comfortable with.
