Adult crisis respite care is available for Nelson Marlborough DHB clients only.
Referrals are sourced through Cads and NGO's Services and require a current comprehensive assessment. Clients must be 18+ years, are substance dependant and "at risk" in their present circumstances. We would require a management plan. Beds are available for up to 7 nights at any one time. Clients are expected to join appropriate groups within the day to day life at St Marks, dependent on health status.
One-on-one time will be available for individual needs e.g. relapse prevention, boundaries and continuing care. Clients will not be accepted if they present intoxicated from alcohol and/or other drugs.
We also provide Supportive Detoxification treatment.
