Counselling Services

The Counselling And Recovery Empowerment (CARE) division of Caraniche plays an important role in outer northern metropolitan Melbourne. Identified as a key ‘growth’ area in Melbourne, Caraniche has been providing alcohol and other drug (AOD) counselling services in Epping since 2011.

Funded by the Victorian Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS), this is a free service where eligible clients can seek treatment for issues predominantly related to alcohol and other drug use. People who have been affected by a loved one who is a substance user can also seek counselling under this DHHS initiative.

Our multidisciplinary and qualified team of psychologists, AOD counsellors and social workers take a client-centred approach to counselling, where they work with the client to address the issues most important to them. Caraniche continues to play an important role in delivering AOD and psychology services in Melbourne’s outer northern suburbs and we continue to look for innovative ways to further engage with the community.
