Celebrating 20 Years: Māori Addictions

Over the last 20 years, Te Rau Ora has played a key role in the development of the Māori Providers and Māori workforces that support healing from substance misuse.

Our work is helped to foster Māori Addiction Sector leadership, build the evidence base for kaupapa Māori Addictions practice, support kaupapa Māori informed education and training, and provide financial and academic support to future Addiction’s practitioners.

The establishment of Whare Tukutuku is a 20-year journey to recognise Māori models of healing from substance misuse. The overall aim is to create a future health and social care workforce that is whānau-centred and community-focused, flexible, redesigned for new scopes of practice, culturally competent and willing to innovate to improve Māori health outcomes and reduce disparities.
