Native American Heritage Awareness Month

Strength, resiliency, and hope are critical cultural characteristics that continue to be sustained in Native American, Tribal, and Indigenous communities throughout our nation. According to the American Psychiatric Association, Native Americans experience serious psychological distress one and one-half times more often than the general population, and experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) more than twice as often as the general population. Native Americans also experience alcohol and drug addiction at younger ages and at higher rates than all other ethnic groups. Reaching out for help can be challenging and knowing where to start might seem overwhelming.
In support of November being National Native American Heritage Awareness month, this months NM 5-Actions Program™ webinar will explore the nature of addiction and healing through indigenous wisdom grounded in treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. We’ll discuss the Soul Wound, limitations of western medicine when disconnected from tribal culture and traditions, and how to optimize care by combining the best of indigenous and western practices. Understanding addiction as a message from spirit will be discussed.
We invite you to join us for a conversation with Dr. John Fitzgerald of Digital Therapeutics and Mr. Lorenzo Jim of First Nations Community Healthsource as we talk about how there are alternative healing practices available to move into recovery, and discuss how the NM 5-Actions Program™ offers powerful learning and behavior change tools to assist those that are ready to overcome addiction and find resiliency.
In this training you will learn:
  • The nature of Soul Wound and its relationship to addiction
  • Benefits of combing indigenous practices with traditional western medicine
  • That you have within you the medicine to heal your wounds
  • How to begin incorporating indigenous healing practices on your recovery journey
