The Community Addiction and Mental Health Group is part of a 12-week community treatment program developed by NSTN, which focuses on clients’ recovery from concurrent mental health and addiction issues and/or other addiction-related issues. The content of the group consists of two parts, the first focusing on evidence-based treatment approaches and best practices, while the second incorporates opportunities to learn more about Indigenous cultural elements. Specifically, the first part of the group will focus on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), while the second part will include cultural teachings Ojibway Anishinaabe First Nations. and the success of the Red Road to Recovery program (for example, an introduction to the medicine wheel, as well as teachings and exercises, etc.). It is a unique and holistic approach to recovery based on decades of Western research combined with centuries of proven Indigenous healing practices.
