Addictions Recovery Program


We believe Carrier Sekani culture and spiritual way of living, which honours and respects all of creation, will empower our communities and strengthen our First Nations - culture is healing.



Our program's mission is to create a healing environment by utilizing a holistic approach that promotes a cultural lifestyle free from addictions and restores a sense of pride in the Carrier and Sekani Culture.



The integrated Health and Wellness Addiction Recovery Program, "Lhet'sut'en" is delivered by our multidisciplinary team consisting of clinical counsellors and cultural knowledge holders.  We believe culture is healing and incorporate a blend of traditional healing practices along with evidence based best practices in addictions treatment reflective of our programs's vision statement: "Culture is Healing."



This program is offered to all Indigenous people. 

During the summer months (May to October), we offer residential treatment on Nadleh Whut’en territory on a beautiful and sacred site at Ormond Lake. 

During the winter months (November to April), our team visits member communities by request. We offer educational and support services with a focus on addiction, and one or two-week treatment programs during the winter. Community visits are open to any northern British Columbia First Nations, based on our availability.
