About Behavioral Health
The purpose of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe Behavioral Health programs is to provide comprehensive, individualized, and holistic treatment to include; residential substance abuse treatment, outpatient mental health and substance abuse services, and prevention to Native Americans. A cultural and sensitive approach shall be taken in the delivery of counseling, outreach, crisis intervention, administrative services, preventive measures, evaluation, planning for the appropriate mental health and substance abuse services and referrals to clients served.
It is an Anishnabe belief that we look at the traditional wellness model instead of the symptomatic concept of illness. This way we focus on the strengths of the person being served, the family, the community and the support systems of the person being served, to help guide this individual on the road to wellness.
The philosophy of the Behavioral Health Programs shall be to help our community members to identify those tools and resources necessary to achieve a balance in their life. The medicine wheel concept of integrating the four components of spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual aspects of a person's life, into a holistic model of recovery is our goal.
