For generations, Wabanaki people have suffered from a lack of resources to immediately help those living with substance use disorder and give long-term support to those in recovery. Addressing the treatment and recovery needs in our communities, we opened doors to multiple locations to support tribal members on their recovery journey. We center culture, ceremony, language, and traditions at the heart of the recovery journey.
The Center for Wabanaki Healing & Recovery puts culture, ceremony, language, and traditions at the heart of the recovery journey to support tribal members achieving optimal wellness. Click here to learn more about our Center for Wabanaki Healing & Recovery Programs.
The mission of our Recovery Homes is to provide a safe, substance-free, and culturally healing living environment for Indigenous people who are ready to transition away from a life of substance use, allowing them to develop meaningful and independent lives.

To build a Recovery-Ready Community, there are four main areas of focus: Access to treatment, Educational Opportunities, Secure and Quality housing, and Employment opportunities. Click here to learn more about our Recovery Homes.
This idea to create a healing space started over a decade ago when tribal leaders got together and worked to create a place of healing. In November 2021, this dream was realized when we opened the doors to the Center for Wabanaki Healing & Recovery, a facility to support tribal members on their recovery journey.
Those seeking healing will have the opportunity to re-establish healthy relationships with our culture and their wellness in Wabanaki homelands, where vulnerability is an opportunity to build strength. We work to heal our communities using traditional healing that allows for connecting with the land and culture. We are committed that wherever our people are in their healing journey, we have a place for them.
