Q: I notice that your Recovery Program has two phases before the Aftercare Program: One is 4 months long and the second is 2 months long. Do you need to complete all 6 months to attend the Aftercare Program.
A: We find that individuals in recovery transition better to aftercare if they complete our 6-month program, but they must attend our 4 month recovery program to be eligible for the free Aftercare Program.
Q: Is an individual required to attend the Aftercare Program?
A: No. We understand that individuals have families, jobs, etc., but we offer the Aftercare Program as a method of helping people transition to a self-supporting life through the recovery process.
Q: Do you have a shorter recovery program than the first phase lasting 4 months.
A: No, our shortest recovery program is 4 months in length.
Q: Can an individual in recovery bring their pet, family, etc.?
A: No, our recovery program is highly supervised and focused on the individual in treatment – our program, housing and facility doesn’t have additional support for pets or family members?
Q: I have someone who has just completed a recovery program elsewhere. Can they attend your Aftercare Program.
A: If space is available, we will consider individuals for our Aftercare Program. Please contact us for more details.
Q: Can you accommodate individuals in your program from out-of-state?
A: Yes, we offer our three-phase recovery program to all Native Americans, regardless of their home state.
Q. Does Whispering Creek Health provide services to everyone in recovery?
A: We provide recovery services to Native Americans exclusively.
Q: I heard that Whispering Creek Health contributes 10% of their net proceeds to the Hummingbird Spirit Foundation – is that true?
A: Yes, the Hummingbird Spirit Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and wellness of Native Americans. As such, Whispering Creek Health dedicates 10% of their net proceeds to this Foundation.
Q: Is Whispering Creek Health owned by a specific Native American Tribe?
A: No, our Founder and one of the owners of Whispering Creek Health is a member of Native American community and we have several team members that are Native American tribal members, but no specific tribe has ownership or management direction over our organization.
