According to figures provided by the national government, nearly 18 percent of Native American Indians suffer from substance abuse issues and require treatment.
That figure is about twice the national average, giving weight to the argument that Native Americans have great need for treatment models that embrace their cultural beliefs, rather than conflict with them, as some typical 12-step approaches do.It is addressing this conflict that Native American rehab centers have stepped up and began molding their cultural traditions with other treatment models creating more specialized treatment for Native Americans by embracing a different approach.
Native American Specific Treatment Methods
Those who attend a specific Native American rehab center will still receive the benefit of the latest assessment and therapeutic techniques, but will also receive the support, education and the structure needed to embark on a new, sober lifestyle.
Native healing practices are incorporated in these treatment centers, recognizing that these may vary from tribe to tribe. Native American mental health and drug addiction programs may include talking circles, sweat lodges, healing ceremonies, smudging, and the use of other native philosophies.
Healing with Comfort and Tradition
It is sometimes the rural nature of Native American land and the lack of infrastructure on these reservations that keeps alcoholism and addiction rates high. Although effort continues to address these problems, they still exist.Choosing a Native American Rehab is the best way to respect tradition while dealing with this crucial problem. Each treatment plan is unique to the individual, and continuing support services geared toward recognizing and implementing cultural and family traditions, are offered.
