Nokomis Endaad is culturally based and trauma informed dual diagnosis treatment program for American Indian women. Grounded in an understanding of the Medicine Wheel, Nokomis Endaad offers active treatment interventions to address the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical aspects of personhood. We understand that reconnection to self in each area is necessary for healing. We offer daily smudging, prayer, drumming and singing. We offer traditional teachings and education on chemical and mental health. Services also include weekly Qi Gong and acupuncture. Individual and group mental health sessions, including art therapy, equine therapy, sand tray, somatic and narrative therapies are available also. We offer CD groups and individual CD sessions. We know that traditional teachings and ways offer a foundation to understanding the world and self, with this as our basis we utilize insights offered by current neuroscience to further support healing. We offer opportunities to experience choice, build relationships with sober peers, learning and practicing spirituality/traditions and or exploring her connection to her higher power, we offer other opportunities to confront patterns and consider alternative options in experiential therapies. These experiences provides the opportunity to reconnect to herself, understanding her addiction and how chemicals impact the body and brain. We offer long-term sobriety maintenance support to assist American Indian women in healing from mental illness, sexual trauma, and chemical addiction.
