Rethinking Treatment in First Nations Communities

About this event

Join us December 7, 2021 for part 2 of the Mental Wellness & Addictions Virtual Training Webinar Series.

This 3-part series, presented by the Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nations Chiefs Secretariat, will discuss how we can rethink treatment in First Nations communities.

Cheyenne Joseph is the Executive Director for the Rising Sun Treatment Centre - an Indigenous-based treatment centre in Natoaganeg, New Brunswick. With a program that originally had been informed by the best practices at the time of their inception, 1988, the centre had very little opportunity to change with the landscape of addictions.

When the pandemic hit, Cheyenne and her team saw the opportunity as a gift and began using their time to pause, ponder, and pivot. After gathering and evaluating the research, the treatment centre team began to test new ideas and make changes, amplifying what worked and changing what didn’t.

Join in the conversation as Cheyenne discusses the much needed changes that may have otherwise never happened had our planet not been shaken by the current global pandemic.
