Many Nations Healing Counseling Services

The mission of the Indian Center, Inc. Intensive Outpatient counseling facility is to operate a culturally-appropriate program that possesses the capability to provide intensive outpatient counseling to adults and youth. Our goal is that these individuals feel challenged, respected, and accountable as they strive to meet the demands of adulthood and younger persons. The alcoholism program prides itself on its diversity of funding sources that make for a fiscally strong organization.

A key aspect of Indian Center, Inc. is a philosophy of recognizing the importance of breaking the generational cycle of addiction. This can be done by promoting alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention programs, enrolling children of addicts in appropriate prevention activities, and providing early intervention services when needed.

The program will operate in response to the great need for alcoholism and mental health treatment services among the state's Native American population (which is estimated at 20,000).

We will strive to uphold the following values:

*Providing quality services to all of our clients, regardless of age, sex, race, color, religion, nationaI origin, sexual orientation, mental or physical disabilities or ability to pay for services.

*Showing sensitivity and caring.
