St. Albert, Alberta. Poundmaker’s Lodge Treatment Centres recognizing National Addictions Awareness Week (NAAW).
The Poundmakers Lodge Treatment Centres Elders, Board and staff are pleased to announce upcoming community engagement activities in recognition of National Addictions Awareness Week (NAAW). National Addictions Awareness week has been around since the late 80’s and since its inception, Poundmaker’s Lodge Treatment Centres has taken the initiative to continue raising awareness and educating the public on efforts to reduce the impact of addictions on our community at large. Our engagement activities will focus on celebrating continued recovery and healing with significance placed on the role of Indigenous culture.
Poundmaker’s Lodge Treatment Centres prides itself on its 45 year history of providing exceptional addiction treatment services to Indigenous populations. Our organization has strived to be a leader in bringing issues of importance to the forefront in both mainstream and Indigenous communities. We believe ongoing engagement through cultural ceremony significantly improves health outcomes amongst our Indigenous peoples and strengthens Alberta’s health care system.
We are recognizing the week with events such as the Sober Walk on Thursday November 15th, and our Round Dance on Saturday November 17th, 2018. We invite the community to show their support in acknowledgement of this important week.
