Substance Abuse and Mental Healthcare in Native America
It’s important to provide barrier-free access to treatment for Native Americans.
The importance is outlined in the disproportionate representation of substance use
disorders within the community and the high rates of completed suicides.
In 2013, American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) had the highest rate of substance dependence or abuse compared with other racial groups. Substance use is linked to premature death and disease among AI/ANs, making it a major public health concern.” – SAMSHA
The services provided by New Moon Lodge seek
to reduce the detrimental impact substance misuse has on the community.
Who We Serve
Native American Men
Our treatment philosophy is based on the premise that our clients, many with histories of multiple residential placements, must learn to regain their pride, build their self-confidence, and strengthen their life skills in order to sustain healthy lifestyles within their families and communities. Residents prepare meals for themselves, participate in the Lodge’s decision-making, housekeeping, grounds-keeping, and also actively participate in a structured treatment curriculum with special emphasis on Native American culture and identity, traditions, and spiritual involvement.
