Our intention in setting up our programs and services is to assist our youth to:
- Accept and understand their addiction and addictive behaviour
- Manage their addiction/addictive behaviour with supports
- Create positive lifestyle changes, a foundation of recovery, and become part of a community of like-minded people
Drug and alcohol addiction is a progressive and complex illness with devastating long-term consequences. Early intervention and education with youth in care has the potential to redirect the trajectory of a young person’s life.
In all stages of the program, youth will be encouraged and supported in participating in traditional cultural / spiritual teachings, practices, ceremonies, Sun Dances, Sweat Lodges and land-based therapy as offered by agency recommended Indigenous community providers.
