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 are some programs specially available to help First Nations living in the area, which provide assessment services, detox programs, holistic treatment, and medical detox all within an out-patient and residential setup 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 their 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.

These drug rehab centers focus on treating Indigenous and First Nations with culturally appropriate methods and counseling geared to the issues they struggle with while addicted to drugs or alcohol. The counseling and treatment methodologies are specific.
Much of the same as any other drug rehab program, besides treatment methodologies being culturally specific. These programs may offer 12-step facilitation and behavioral therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and individual or group counseling.
Depending on the province, First Nations individuals can find detox programs, outpatient centers, residential drug rehab, group meetings, and aftercare support options. Every province is different, and local First Nations communities operate most programs with funding received from the federal government.
