Manawa Ora - Community Withdrawal Service

Alcohol and other drug community withdrawal service - Home-based nursing service

MANAWA ORA is a free community home-based withdrawal nursing service co-ordinated by our nursing team that aims to support safe withdrawal from alcohol and/or other drugs, supporting your move to improved health, recovery and wellness.

A tailored plan for managed withdrawal is completed with your full participation and support person e.g. whanau, consumer advocate (as consented).

All community withdrawal clients need a key support person (e.g. friend, whanau, or advocate) over the 14 day withdrawal treatment plan period.

The nurse can:

· On-refer, support, and advocate as per the treatment plan goals. It’s not uncommon to access a range of services as part of your plan and we can assist with this.

· Provide home-based detox, progress and wellbeing need checks (by appointment). Treatment support accessible from 92 Spey Street, Invercargill.

· Liaise and link you to addiction counselling services, support groups, community providers, Rongoa, Maori Service Providers, and other health services as required.

Discharge: Discharge planning occurs as part of the initial assessment and as a plan outcome.

Referrals: You can self-refer or referrals can be made by your General Practitioner and other health providers.

Seeking to support safe managed community withdrawal, a return to improved health and wellbeing. Supporting your return to participation in society and doing the things you care about.
