Rewired 2023

Want support changing your relationship with meth?

Rewired is a non-judgemental programme for people using methamphetamine that want to change their relationship with it.
If you’re a guy (cis or trans) who has sex with other guys and wants support to review, reduce or stop your meth-use, then Rewired is for you.

There will be three Rewired programmes coming up in the next few months. These will be running from March to May in Auckland, Wellington & Christchurch.

Over the eight weeks, we will cover a range of topics like intimacy, relationships and navigating sex, as well as topics specific to using drugs, like safer partying, meth and the brain, relapse prevention, and more.

We work in a harm-reduction model. This means that we meet each person where they are at and support them to shape and reach their individual goals.

Rewired is brought to you by Burnett Foundation Aotearoa and NZ Drug Foundation.
