Get to know us
Enhancing the Lives of Children, Parents, and Families Since 2014
At Pihesiw Lodge, we believe that keeping families together is crucial to the long-term health for Indigenous Children. As a First Nations Family Addictions Treatment Centre, we are breaking new ground and taking a new approach to keeping parents and children together. We provide parents with an empowering culturally based addictions treatment experience, combined with personal development programming designed to strengthen their parenting skills and abilities. Children reside with their parents for the entire duration of the program in a group living facility.
Parents and children progress through their addictions treatment and family reunification journey in three to six months before returning to their home communities.
Addictions Treatment Programming
The lodge’s addictions treatment program is abstinence-based, due to the nature of the facility. The program is delivered through an Indigenous worldview and engages participants to apply traditional teachings to their life within modern society. Intergenerational trauma and the history of indigenous people in Canada are concepts examined. Grief, Loss, & Trauma counselling are also included in the program.
Personal Development Programming
Each parent will have an individualized programming plan to strengthen their knowledge, skills, and abilities in a safe and supportive environment. We offer a variety of modules adapted to be culturally relevant and align with the teachings of the medicine wheel, the seven grandfathers, and traditional culture including parenting, life skills, homemaking, health, wellbeing, education, & employment.
