Collaboration of Land-based Programming

Northwood Recovery is proud to collaborate with community agencies and provide land-based programs.

Land-based healing is dedicated to promoting and reinforcing community wellness by providing space, resources and programming that help families and individuals throughout their healing process. Those participating in land-based activities are provided a safe and empowering environment for men and women to share knowledge, engage with one another, and to be given the chance to live the traditional experience.

Be a part of our journey and reconnect with nature and yourself. You will be guided by our Natural Helpers down this healing path to recovery. Participants will have many opportunities to different workshops and one-on-one counselling.

These programs and workshops include the following;

  • Cultural therapy activities such as ceremonies
  • Sessions on cultural teachings
  • Traditional language
  • Cultural activities such as hunting, gathering plants for medicines, crafts and other activities on the land.

Who or what is a Natural Helper?

A Natural Helper is an Indigenous individual whom has a solid record of accomplishment of ethical conduct supported by references, recognition by others as a healer, experience and respect in the community, and a history of successful recovery.

The Natural Helper is usually warm and has a gentleness about them, is very honest and open-minded, has an unmistakable positive energy and deep knowledge of ceremonies allows them to lead and/or participate.
