A Firestarter in the Wellbriety Movement
does just what the name implies. The fire is wellness and sobriety that results from following Wellbriety curriculum and participating in Medicine Wheel and 12 Step programs. A Firestarter, as is staffed at Tarzana Treatment Centers, provides the spark by teaching Wellbriety in Native American alcohol and drug treatment
Firestarters are a limited commodity in California, as well as the Southwestern region of the United States. Considering the size of the Native American population suffering from alcohol dependence
and drug addiction
, there should be many more. So we are happy to be a part of, and not in competition with, the small community of Wellbriety resource providers in the region.
At Tarzana Treatment Centers we have worked very hard to establish a quality Native American alcohol and drug treatment track. What began as the recognition of a need has become a popular program that marries standard alcohol and drug treatment
with Native American culture
and tradition. Having a Firestarter on staff means that patients never need to leave the building for these services.
Firestarters are vital to quality care in Native American alcohol and drug treatment that includes Wellbriety resources. They provide guidance through the curriculum, facilitate Medicine Wheel and 12 Step, and conduct Circles of Recovery. Without an in-house Firestarter, patients would need to be sent elsewhere to participate since this is not a self-starting process.
Native American alcohol abuse
and drug abuse
continue to be a major problem. So along with the in-house services we provide, we also continue to attend Pow Wows and other Native American cultural events
. Patients enrolled in our Native American treatment track have the option of attending these events as well.
