Substance Abuse

Dr. Ken Couper specialises in Addiction medicine. Drug and alcohol misuse is a complex issue. While the number of people with a serious problem is relatively small, someone's substance misuse and dependency affects everybody around them.

If you have a problem with drugs, there's a wide range of addiction services that can help. Drug Help NZ

If you or someone you care about has an alcohol or other drug problem, or you want to change your habits, there is help available. It’s important to remember that you aren’t alone. Support groups are offered in most communities.

These groups hold regular meetings for people with alcohol and other drug problems.
There are also groups for people who may be affected by someone else’s drinking or drug use.

At Flagstaff Medical we can discuss your concerns with you, assess the nature of your problems and help you choose the most appropriate treatment. Many drug treatment services accept self-referrals so, if you're not comfortable talking to us, you might be able to approach your local drug treatment service directly.
