First Nation Treatments In Newfoundland

Throughout the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, there are many different First Nations and Inuit peoples living all over.  Unfortunately, as in any other community, drugs and alcohol can become issues for some, and it can be difficult to find help and especially receive help quickly.  In the province, there is a program specially available to help First Nations living in the area, and this is through the Charles J. Andrew Youth Treatment Center, which provides assessment services, detox programs, holistic treatment, and medical detox all within an out-patient and residential set up for addicts.  First nations programs are typically structured around First Nations practices and techniques for healing a person physically and mentally.  As drug and alcohol addiction will damage a person physically and mentally, it is important that they are given every opportunity to heal and improve his or her life once again.  Typically, these types of programs are low-cost and no-cost treatment centers, but there are some private drug rehab centers located in the province.  These types of programs for First Nations can be very successful, as they are still connected with their heritage and people, who can help them through their substance abuse problems.

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people.
