Wings Trust was established in 1986 to provide accommodation and rehabilitation for people wanting to be abstinent from substances.
Wings prepares people for more intensive treatment with a pre-treatment period of up to two-months and integrates people back into the community post treatment over a four-month period.
Support includes one to one counselling, facilitated process groups & education groups.
Our counsellors use a variety of evidenced based models including: Motivational Enhancement, Twelve Step Facilitation, and Cognitive Behavioural approaches. Te Whare Tapa Wha and holistic models of health are also encouraged.
Wings has seven houses; two women’s houses, one mixed house and four men’s houses.
In addition, we have two mixed houses for people who have completed the programme and meet the criteria for this accommodation.
Attendance of 12 Step meetings is part of the treatment.
