Odyssey House’s impact extended across New South Wales during 2022 – 2023, with a significant 25% increase in the number of people supported through our range of programs.

More than 3,700 lives were touched, with over 3,400 people guided through community hubs, almost 300 through residential treatment and 198 parents through our Reconnecting Families suite of services.

Faces behind the facts

Behind the statistics are genuine stories of real people from all walks of life, each navigating their recovery journey to address the physical, mental, social and economic harms linked to substance abuse.

Over the 12 months, Odyssey inaugurated a state-of-the-art Family Recovery Centre, providing a home-like environment for parents and their children during recovery.

Our Multicultural Programs expanded to address the significant need for specialised alcohol and other drug services for culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

New leadership

June welcomed new CEO Carmel Tebbutt who brings with her a wealth of experience from her years working in the community mental health sector and as Deputy Premier and a Senior Minister in the NSW Government.

We look to the future with excitement and anticipate the opportunities from the upcoming Drug Summit as a chance to voice our needs and those of the wider sector.
