Higher Ground’s Mission
Our mission is to provide tools for transformational change to people affected by severe addiction. In doing so we aim to support recovery for individuals and whānau and to reduce the harm that alcohol and other drug addiction causes in communities and society as a whole.

We offer a high quality, culturally responsive  programme based on a therapeutic community model.

Our Programmes
We provide rehabilitation programmes that are based on 12 Step recovery principles. We believe the spiritual dimensions of honesty, open mindedness, willingness, faith, hope, respect and generosity are the foundations of healing. We emphasise that clients need to take individual responsibility for their recovery.
