Our Recovery Program was designed by recovering Native Americans for Native Americans.  Additionally, our commitment and implementation to a Recovery Aftercare Program stands alone in the industry that realizes the importance of this continued support but fails to create a method of providing this service.


At Whispering Creek Health, the designed path to recovery and support has three important phases:

Phase 1: Cleansing Phase


  • Four-month (120 day) cleansing phase that provides an Extensive Native Culture orientation/training program conducted during the day.

  • A gradual Intensive Outpatient Care program.

  • Supportive housing and food during treatment. 

  • During this initial phase, we fully support and understand the recovering individual is experiencing a variety of spiritual, physical and behavioral changes.

  • During this same phase, we are diligent in our orientation and training of inter-tribal practices and cultural integration inspired by Don Coyhis’s Wellbriety Movement.

  • We work to help the individual build a stronger connection to their heritage and build a strong support structure to weather the recovery challenges that are on the horizon.

Phase 2: Skill Building Phase


  • Two-month (60 day) Intensive Outpatient Care program with emphasis on post-recovery challenges and solutions.

  • A continuation of the Native Cultural Program.

  • Employment-related job skills development program conducted during the day.

  • Supportive housing and food during treatment (in preparation for Phase 3).

  • Training and preparation for the Aftercare Program.

  • Exploring employment opportunities for individuals with one of our partner organizations or other community employers.


Phase 3: Aftercare Program


  • Up to Six-month (180 day) supportive housing aftercare program

  • The Individual participates in the management of their aftercare by:

    • Holding a job

    • Paying a weekly rental

    • Managing their own food

    • Actively participating in ongoing recovery groups

    • Participating in cultural training and ceremonies

    • Learning and developing new job skills

    • Cooperatively working with fellow recovering individuals and staff members
