Our programs are designed to meet the unique needs of each patient, and we provide evidence-based care that has been shown to be effective in treating addiction.
Our treatment programs include:
- Medical Detox: Our medical detox program provides a safe and supportive environment for patients to detoxify from drugs or alcohol. Our medical team closely monitors patients’ withdrawal symptoms and provides medication-assisted treatment as needed to manage discomfort and ensure a smooth transition into the next phase of treatment.
- Residential Treatment: Our residential Inpatient program provides 24/7 support and a structured environment for patients to focus on their recovery. Patients receive individual and group therapy, participate in therapeutic activities, and have access to medical and psychiatric care as needed. Our residential program typically lasts 30 to 90 days, depending on the patient’s needs and progress.
- Intensive Outpatient Program: Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) is designed for patients who have completed residential treatment or who do not require 24/7 care. Patients attend therapy and other treatment activities several times per week while still being able to maintain their daily responsibilities. IOP typically lasts 6 to 12 weeks and can be a step-down from residential care or a standalone program.
- Alumni Support: We believe that recovery is a lifelong journey, and we offer alumni support services to help our patients maintain their sobriety after completing our programs. Our alumni support program includes ongoing therapy, support groups, and other resources to help patients stay on the path to recovery.

Native American Substance Use Disorder Statistics
Substance use disorder (SUD) is a significant issue in the Native American population, with rates of substance abuse and addiction often exceeding those of other racial and ethnic groups. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Native Americans are more likely than other racial or ethnic groups to report heavy alcohol use and binge drinking. Additionally, Native Americans have higher rates of tobacco use and illicit drug use, including methamphetamine and opioids. These statistics highlight the urgent need for culturally sensitive and effective addiction treatment services for Native Americans.

Factors That Contribute To Native American Substance Use Disorder
Addiction has been a significant issue for the Native American population for many years, with rates of substance abuse and addiction often exceeding those of other racial and ethnic groups. There are several factors that contribute to this issue, including:
- Historical Trauma: Native Americans have experienced a long history of trauma, including forced removal from their lands, boarding school systems that prohibited the use of Native languages and cultural practices, and other forms of cultural suppression. This has led to intergenerational trauma and a sense of loss of cultural identity, which can contribute to feelings of hopelessness, depression, and substance abuse.
- Poverty: Native American communities are often disproportionately affected by poverty, unemployment, and lack of access to resources. Poverty and unemployment can contribute to stress and feelings of hopelessness, which can increase the risk of substance abuse and addiction.
- Limited Access to Healthcare: Native Americans may face barriers to accessing quality healthcare, including substance abuse treatment services. This can be due to geographic isolation, lack of transportation, or lack of culturally appropriate services.
- Cultural Barriers: Native Americans may face cultural barriers to accessing substance abuse treatment, including stigma, shame, and lack of trust in non-Native healthcare providers. Additionally, some Native American cultures view addiction as a spiritual issue that requires traditional healing practices, which may not be available in Western-style addiction treatment programs.
Overall, the high rates of addiction among the Native American population are the result of a complex set of social, historical, and cultural factors. Effective treatment for Native Americans requires an understanding of these factors and a culturally sensitive approach to care.
