Centre Walgwan Center
   
Mission

With full respect for the dignity and value of each person, the Centre provides a safe environment to each First Nations and Inuit Youth with a personally centered, holistic and culturally appropriate transition to her/his own path to well-being and a healthy life.

By “Youth” we mean any First Nation or Inuit Youth, aged 12 to 17, who acknowledges an unhealthy dependence on solvents, and other substances and addictive activities. We also include her/his family and community with whom we work in a supportive partnership.

By “transition” we mean working in partnership to support the Youth through the different recovery steps, including the pre-Centre ‘preparation' and the ‘after care'.

By “personally centered” we mean that we take each person where s/he is, and support her/him on the transition to where s/he wants to go.

Culturally based:

The Centre brings in Elders to share knowledge of the different First Nations' traditions. This enables each Youth to benefit from an appropriate cultural and traditional healing and teaching.
