Tarzana Treatment Centers recognizes the importance of connecting with communities we serve in alcohol and drug treatment
. We believe that a show of support for cultural activities through attendance and involvement allows us to provide better treatment to individuals. We also get a chance to educate members of the community about alcohol and drug addiction treatment, and bring hope to those in need of treatment.
The Central Valley Sacred Hoop Event
in Clovis, California was another opportunity for us to inform the community about our Native American alcohol and drug treatment services
. We met with several local community organizers, directors and volunteers who expressed interest in our services. Information pamphlets were displayed for anyone needing information on alcohol dependence
, drug addiction, detox
and treatment for Native Americans.
The event focused on identity as Native Americans, and how traditional teachings can heal and turn lives around. One important component of alcohol and drug treatment is to help patients discover their identities or “find themselves.” Our services for Native Americans allow for uninterrupted culture and tradition, which we agree is helpful in the healing process.
Presentations at the event revolved around the Wellbriety Movement
, a program from White Bison
, with Firestarters
discussing the Positive Warrior concept. Staff members at Tarzana Treatment Centers are either involved with, or trained about, these programs and concepts. This promotes understanding of culture and tradition, making alcohol and drug treatment more comfortable for our Native American patients.
