Stz’uminus Alcohol & Drug Program

The National Native Alcohol and Drug Abuse Program (NNADAP) supports Stz’uminus members with their substance use and help them get connected to the supports they need.

We have one NNADAP worker who offers addiction support through one-on-one, family, and/or group counselling. The NNADAP worker connects members with appropriate professionals and resources, including referrals to detox, recovery homes and treatment centres. If a client enters treatment, NNADAP workers continue to support them as they work to maintain sobriety after returning home.

Stz’uminus NNADAP workers are available seven days a week, including nights and weekends.

To make an appointment, please call or email Dan.
