About us

DrugHelp is a programme of the NZ Drug Foundation. The tools are based on established methods to overcome moderate drug use disorder with guidance and peer review from New Zealand based addiction treatment experts.

DrugHelp contains information and tools for people concerned about the negative effects of their substance use. It also can help people concerned about someone else's substance use. DrugHelp provides high quality, objective information about drugs and their potential harms.

The tools incorporate videos showing real New Zealanders who went through the highs and lows of drug addiction. The site wouldn't be possible without their gutsy willingness to share their stories; we deeply appreciate their honesty and hope.

More about what's behind DrugHelp

The NZ Drug Foundation  is a charitable entity which aims to reduce harm from alcohol and other drugs using evidence based initiatives while advocating for evidence based 'support, don't punish' drug policy in New Zealand.

The Ministry of Health  leads New Zealand’s health and disability system, and has overall responsibility for the management and development of that system. It provides funding for this service.
