The World Health Organization implemented the Indigenous Peoples and Substance Use project as a way of empowering communities and giving them control over their health. A definition of indigenous is “a group of international people who have a set of specific rights based on their historical ties to a particular territory.” Substance abuse problems affect several types of individuals but are one of the major health issues facing indigenous groups. Indigenous therapy can help indigenous people find the support and community they need to become clean and sober and maintain their sobriety.
Indigenous Therapy at A Forever Recovery
It is important for patients to enter a group therapy that works specifically for them and their needs. This is why there are so many different types of group therapies, such as Indigenous therapy. This way, people of similar nature can come together and share their experiences and pieces of advice with one another to gain a better insight into themselves and others around them. At A Forever Recovery, we have sought to bring together several trained and licensed professionals or certified recovering members of many different modalities that have a background in the addiction field. We aim to provide a recovering environment that is unique by bringing together many different types of counselors.
We want to guide our clients into finding the kind of treatments that are best for their specific needs. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction and would like to learn more about indigenous group therapy, call us at our toll-free number to speak with one of our advisors.
