Applying the Principles of Wellbriety
The Red Road to Wellbriety: In the Native American Way relates Native American philosophies to the practices used by Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous, as the 12-step process shares many of the characteristics of Native healing traditions. Some of the steps even align with the circle teaching that’s so important to the Native American community.
Virtue Recovery Center uses the principles of Wellbriety in its Native American recovery program, ensuring your cultural beliefs are completely aligned with your personalized addiction treatment plan. Although Alcoholics Anonymous is often thought of as the original support group, it was Native Americans who formed the first formal networks of recovery groups. VRC’s Native American recovery program builds on this tradition by incorporating the principles of Wellbriety.
