New Zealand Society on
Alcohol and Drug Dependence
Treatment provider, advocacy group, educational body - we've done a lot of things over the years to improve the lives of those affected by alcohol and other drug use.
In the last 12 months about 1 in 5 New Zealanders will have had a diagnosable mental illness, with 1 in 30 people experiencing severe mental illness that required specialist services. With an estimated 12 percent of New Zealanders experiencing a substance use disorder in their lifetime, understanding the needs of these people is crucial to providing the right services.*
At NSAD (New Zealand Society on Alcohol and Drug Dependence), we have worked in the sector since 1954 to improve the lives of those in need.
