For over 10 years, the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe has provided its community with residential substance abuse treatment in the heart of its Isabella Indian Reservation in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. The reservation is the tribe’s headquarters, and it also operates an outpatient program on the reservation.
Saginaw Chippewa’s substance abuse programs aim to provide a safe haven where clients can develop humility, honesty, self-respect and recovery skills to help sustain lasting sobriety. Treatment is culturally-sensitive, incorporating a variety of tribal traditions. Treatment is available to registered tribe members or direct descendants residing in Isabella, Arenac, Midland, Missaukee or Clare counties.
Treatment and Staff
Outpatient treatment is offered at the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) level of care. Clients attend group therapy three days a week—on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. They also have individual therapy once a week. The duration of most treatment plans is 12 weeks.
The treatment team includes LPCs and CADCs and a psychiatrist visits the reservation once a week for dual diagnosis support. Treatment is 12-step focused and adheres to the Medicine Wheel traditions, which seek to integrate the client’s spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical well-being. Clients are encouraged to attend Wellbriety or 12-step peer support meetings while in treatment.
Clients can bring family members to individual therapy for family counseling.
For aftercare, clients may create an on-going individual therapy schedule with their counselor. They can also attend drop-in relapse prevention groups on Mondays and Fridays. The reservation also offers case management services and domestic violence intervention and anger management classes.
The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe’s treatment program motto is “Nog-Da-Win-Da-Meg,” which means “Taking Care of One Another.” It offers culturally-sensitive 12-step focused treatment that aims to help clients manage their substance abuse while cultivating a deeper sense of community and self-esteem through exploring their tribal heritage.
