About Us

American Indian Changing Spirits is a Residential Recovery Program targeting American Indian men and women who suffer from alcohol and/or drug addiction.

American Indian Changing Spirits is a non-profit program that does not discriminate and does not deny services based on race, ethnic background, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, or the ability to pay. A residency is expected to fully benefit from services provided by American Indian Changing Spirits.

Individuals with convictions or pending sentencing for domestic violence/violent crimes will be referred to an appropriate agency.

A minimum of 48 hours without using alcohol or other drugs is required before entering the program. Persons wishing to become participants are requested to bring TB test results not older than six months.

The program is a 24-hour in house structured program. The program provides residential recovery services in an alcohol and drug-free facility. Physical exercise is an everyday program activity and residents who are physically able are required to participate.

Residents of the American Indian Changing Spirits Alcohol and Drug Residential Recovery Program participate in a wide array of services designed to support recovery. These services include...

  • Alcohol and Drug Education
  • Resident Council
  • One on One Counseling
  • Recreation and Social Activities
  • Relapse Prevention Groups
  • Anger Management
  • 12-Step Groups
  • Cultural Activities
Resident rooms are shared with other residents and each is provided with a bed and small storage space for clothing and personal items. Do not bring excess items.

The facility lounge provides a communal leisure space for the residents and also serves as the program education and group room.

Residents are assigned a case manager upon completion of all intake forms. Program staff orientates residents to the program services, orientation to the facility structure, and introductions to staff and fellow residents.

American Indian Changing Spirits is a dynamic culturally relevant alcohol and drug program that participates in outside cultural and community events.
