Ask a Professional

  • What is a drug rehab center for First Nations?

    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.

  • What type of treatment methodologies are offered to First Nations?

    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.

  • What types of substance use treatment facilities are available for First Nations?

    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.
