Virtual Medicine Wheel and 12 Steps Training
Medicine Wheel & 12 Step for Youth: Provides a culturally appropriate 12 Step program for Native American/Alaska Native adolescents (ages 13 to 21 years).Given the different concerns that boys and girls have, separate programs have been developed for each. Medicine Wheel and 12 Steps for youth is specifically designed for youth (age 13-21). The focus of the program is to get behind the symptoms of alcohol and drug misuse and focus on the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual foundations that cause young people to begin using alcohol and drugs in the first place.
As part of the overall cultural approach, participants learn to use traditional cultural practices to assist them in maintaining a healthy, balanced life that is alcohol and drug free. In addition, storytelling is used as an instructional method.
24 Continuing Education Hours are available through NAADAC.
