The 5-Step Method is an evidence-based and trauma-informed approach that supports whānau members of people experiencing addiction issues to respond and cope more effectively. It was developed in the UK and extensively researched in several other countries and cultures by members of the Addiction and Family International Network (AFINet). The research took place within cultures from both collective and individualistic world views and emerging evidence suggests it is effective for whānau members in Aotearoa New Zealand. This infographic is a brief summary of that research.



Te Pou has a wide range of evidence-based resources and tools to help the mental health, addiction and disability workforces.
