At the heart of everything we do are connections that better lives

Integrity, excellence, innovation, partnership

Caraniche is a specialist provider of a broad range of psychological services. We work with some of the most marginalised people in the community and within correctional facilities, to help get their lives back on track through behaviour change programs, alcohol and drug counselling and specialised services for youth. We also specialise in providing workplace wellbeing solutions that are focused on making people the priority.



As we respond to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the safety and wellbeing of both our staff and clients are our highest priority. We are committed to supporting our clients, many of whom are particularly vulnerable during this challenging time, while adhering to current State Government advice and social distancing guidelines.


AOD Counselling services (including forensic clients) remain open

Caraniche‚Äôs community AOD counselling services and forensic AOD services (Hiroads, Kickstart and counselling) remain open during normal business hours. To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have moved most of our face-to-face services to telephone appointments. For clients who do not have a phone, we encourage other service providers who have contact with our clients to assist them to make contact with us so we can make alternate arrangements to continue their treatment. We will also assist such clients to make contact with all other services should they be in direct contact with us. 


Our office locations for clients who need to attend in person are: 

  • 260 Hoddle St Abbotsford
  • 763 High St Epping

Our best contact during this time is via Caraniche Head Office: 8417 0500.
