About the program

Odyssey House Victoria offers a Financial Counselling Program to individuals with alcohol and other drug problems who are also experiencing financial hardship. We also offer financial counselling to those with gambling problems.

The program helps individuals to identify, prioritise and then address any financial problems, and to decrease the stress and anxiety they are experiencing by developing new strategies to better manage their money. Our financial counsellors are able to advocate on clients behalf to assist in gaining better outcomes with institutions, creditors and debt collectors.

A qualified financial counsellor assesses each person’s situation and tailors an individual plan with a range of options and support.  Odyssey House also helps negotiate with creditors.
