Addictions Recovery Program

We 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.


About the Program

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. Take a look at our brochure for more information


Who We Serve

This program is offered to all Indigenous people. The program incorporates a blend of traditional healing practices along with evidence based practices in addictions treatment. Our Wellness Workers program provides community-based addictions services focused on prevention, intervention, treatment referral, and after-treatment support.

We only accept clients registered as Indigenous and that are residents of British Columbia and Yukon. As per First Nations Health Authority (FHNA) policy, we do not accept clients from other provinces in Canada.

Here are some steps to take when applying for treatment programs
