The Addiction and Mental Health Community Group is part of a 12-week community-based treatment program developed by NSTN, that focuses on client recovery from concurrent mental health and substance abuse and/or other addiction related concerns. The group content consists of two parts, with the first focusing on evidence-based, best practice treatment approaches, while the second incorporates opportunities to learn about Indigenous cultural elements. Specifically, the first portion of the group will focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), while the second portion will include cultural teachings of the Indigenous First Nations’ Ojibway Anishinaabe and the successful Red Road to Recovery program (e.g. an introduction to the Medicine Wheel, along with teachings and exercises, etc.). This is a unique and holistic approach to recovery based on decades of Western research blended with centuries of demonstrated Indigenous healing practices.
