White Bison Training Event Registration
Join the Wellbriety Movement
Substance use disorder rehabilitation for Native American people should be personalized to incorporate the culture, tradition, and values. These programs incorporate native culture into the evidence-based practices found in quality drug and alcohol treatment programs. To revitalize the traditional teachings of unity and oneness with the Earth within tribal communities, the Wellbriety Movement was formed. Wellbriety offers culturally-based education courses within each White Bison training event.
The Importance of Culturally-Based Treatment for Native People
At the core of Native culture is the belief in interconnectedness that fortified the tribal communities of America for thousands of years prior to the English settlers. Following the attempts to assimilate Native people within western customs, these practices were silenced. Historically, Native communities have been unable to freely express their traditions without the risk of alienation, relocation, or punishment. As a result, wide-spread intergenerational trauma continues to negatively impact the individuals within these tribes.
Wellbriety-certified facilitators possess the knowledge and ability to work with tribal guests as they reconnect their spirit to the world and all of its elements. In turn, these programs bring Native Americans clarity and wholeness during addiction treatment and recovery. Within a culturally-based treatment program, Native people strengthen their connections to the customs of their ancestors. Native American programs also utilize these teachings as a foundation for growth and change in addiction recovery.
The Benefits of a Wellbriety Certification
White Bison is the official facilitator for the Wellbriety Movement. Wellbriety, the combination of sobriety and wellness, symbolizes the commitment to extend beyond abstinence by dedicating each day to the principles of wellness and healing. More specifically, the movement teaches American Natives a sustainable path to recovery from substance use disorders within its culturally-based treatment curriculum.
Through Wellbriety’s cultural education curriculum, White Bison, facilitators are provided an avenue to learn and comprehend the origins and influencing factors of Native American substance use. Facilitators who attend a White Bison training event provide culturally-inclusive treatment to benefit the recovery from drugs and alcohol in tribal communities.
Mending Broken Hearts:
A White Bison Training Event
Through the White Bison training event, Mending Broken Hearts, facilitator’s gain one of many certification’s from the Wellbriety Movement. Mending Broken Hearts focuses on an approach to addressing intergenerational trauma for the purpose of healing. Mending Broken Hearts teaches about the trauma from stripping away the culture, interconnectedness, elders’ teachings, spirituality, language, values and ceremonies from Native Americans. Historically, this trauma occurred generations ago, as a consequence of mission and boarding schools that the Native American youth were forced into. This shift resulted in trauma— the taking away of an identity, values, having native languages silenced, even sexual and physical abuse.
The pain from this trauma is still felt, seven generations later. We are committed to breaking this cycle. Some of the biggest roadblocks to addiction treatment for Native Americans are addressing this intergenerational trauma, the generations of substance abuse and addiction, generations of shame and generations of abuse. We use the knowledge from this training to address the very real and ever-present root emotions of anger, guilt, shame, and fear— so that we can make room for healing.
