Brave Hearts is a Support Group for those who have loved ones in the grip of addiction. Our objective is to Educate & Inform family and friends and to provide ongoing support or referral to professional help.
"Since joining Brave Hearts Facebook group and meeting other parents of meth addicts in Auckland, I feel much more able to deal with my son's addiction. I have learnt about how to manage his behaviour and how to look after myself. Most importantly, meeting people who are like me and find themselves in this terrible situation, has helped immensely. I firmly believe that Brave Hearts has saved my sanity!"
Welcome to Brave Hearts … a free support service for people with loved ones in the grips of substance use and addiction.
We are members of the community who have been through or have been directly affected by the agonising, daily trauma of having an addicted loved one.
Brave Hearts facilitates group meetings, provides phone support and can refer those who need it to counselling or other professional service providers. Everyone is welcome.
Part of our mission is to meet an urgent need for people to be better educated and informed about the effects of substance use and to lobby for more support to empower those who are battling with the effects of drug use in our community.
On 30-Jun-19, it will be Brave Hearts NZ's third birthday; three years that Brave Hearts NZ has been working in the community. As well as our volunteers, it is thanks to grants and donations that has enabled us to provide this service to people that are trying to support and help their loved ones who are struggling with substance use.
Please help us continue our work for another year with a one off donation, as much or as little as you want or contribute to us on an ongoing basis, setting up a monthly direct credit payment for as little as $5 or $10 per month.
All donations are tax deductible and if you require a receipt, please email us your email address when making a payment.
Please see our donate page for our bank account details.
We thank you all and appreciate every donation.
