Ka-Na-Chi-Hih is a 6 bed, 7-week residential treatment program designed for Indigenous individuals, ages 18 to 29, with polysubstance use and mental health challenges.
We are a voluntary program, requiring individuals to have a genuine interest in seeking treatment and being motivated to attend of their own volition. We cannot accept individuals who are under pressure, coercion, or feel forced to join our program.
Our program emphasizes cultural connections as a cornerstone of wellness to foster meaning, purpose, hope, and belonging. Participants engage in immersive experiences through learning traditional culture, partaking in traditional activities, and spending time on the land.
Our holistic approach extends to developing essential life skills, healthy coping strategies, resiliency, self-esteem, and a strong sense of cultural identity, while incorporating elements such as Strawberry Medicine teachings and Red Path programming to enhance self-awareness, strengthen social and emotional skills, and foster healing.
Our dedicated Treatment Team provides holistic support, addressing practical needs such as renewing government documents and arranging appointments, while crafting Individualized Treatment Plans with each participant to ensure sustained success beyond program graduation.
