INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT TREATMENT
NATIVE HEALING PROGRAM
Intensive Outpatient Treatment
Native Healing Program (NHP) offers intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment sessions in the evenings as indicated. NHP is likely the only treatment program in Rapid City that offers a 100% Native American counseling staff and administration. We are obviously born in to the Native American culture. We understand issues and difficulties unique to Native American life that is often made worse with the use of alcohol and/or drugs. We provide a welcoming safe place that is felt the moment you walk in the door. This is your program.
NHP utilizes standard concepts and evidenced based practices found in substance abuse treatment along with needed treatment services unique to Native Americans. Our IOP treatment educates on the Historical Trauma experience and its unfolding effects in to our personal experiences today that often results in painful life experiences and legal problems. NHP values healing concepts that targets the underlying reasons for substance abuse such as unresolved difficult life experiences.
We utilize cultural norms such as smudging and prayer with every session. NHP make available an Inipi (sweat lodge) at least two times a week. We do incorporate education on values, virtues and sacred rites of our culture while respecting all religious beliefs.
Transportation is ONLY available to and from Inipi and evening Individual Outpatient Treatment for clients (4:00 pm to (8:00 pm). Please make arrangements for rides a day in advance. Thank you!
