Janet Colby

Facilitator - Addiction 101

My name is Janet Colby. I’m an AOD clinician. I have a passion for working alongside people who have been affected by addiction.

I started work in the field in 1982 at the Auckland Drug Dependency clinic and helped set up Higher Ground Drug Rehabilitation Trust in 1983 and am still involved today.

For the last few years I have been facilitating different groups for clients and affected others at the CADs Abstinence programme.

I am excited to be co-facilitating these workshops as it provides another opportunity to educate about addiction and explore stigma and discrimination.
