Title: Keeping the 'Positive' in Wellington:                              presented by Drug-ARM Wellington

Speaker: Phil King and Maureen MacDonald


Drug-ARM is a non-denominational Christian response to the growing negative effects of alcohol and drug addiction.

We have been present and active as a uniformed entity in the Greater Wellington area for the past 18 years.

Drug-ARM has been a consistent mobile presence on the street and we believe currently we are the only charitable agency left committed to engaging:

  • 'Street' regulars
  • 'At risk' youth
  • Students
  • Tourists and 
  • General public
 in situ in the late hours of a weekend.  

The talk will leave you with some insight as to what we encounter and how our presence makes a positive difference on the streets.
