Choices for Change

Choices for Change is an Alcohol, Drug and Gambling Counselling Centre provides services to anyone impacted by their own or someone else’s substance use or gambling behaviour.

Substance abuse and problem gambling can have a strong negative impact on individuals, their families and the community. Our goal is to help you, and those you care about regain control of your life and give you hope for the future.

Our services are free, practical, confidential and build on your strengths.  We believe anyone can meet their goals and are inspired daily by the courage, commitment and resilience of our clients.
