WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO – OUR 43 YEAR HISTORY:
Native Directions Inc. Three Rivers Indian Lodge has served as a drug and alcohol recovery program for Native American men from ALL TRIBES for 40 years. The Native American spiritual and cultural components of our recovery program make our work uniquely effective for Native people that we serve. Any land we occupy is considered sacred ground to us and our extended native and non-native community.
We are the hub of the largest informal network of clean and sober Native people in California.
We provide the following services:
· Residential Treatment Center – 20 bed capacity.
· Offsite Mental Health Services to Native Americans through San Joaquin County Mental Health
· Offsite Sober Living Experience house in Manteca, CA
· Onsite After Care Services for native and non-native clients.
Native American spiritual ceremonies are the backbone of our program. Our ceremony fires (campfire size) burn six days a week, for our clients in recovery and on occasion for the greater Native community. We work for the Creator. We hold all life to be sacred. Without prayer, we would have no program.
Thousands of Native men from all tribes have graduated from our program, and transitioned to successful careers in health care, corporate work, social services and many other professions. They have restored their families and renewed the health of their tribal communities.
We are not a casino tribe, and do not benefit from economic activities associated with casinos.
OUR VISION – THE NEXT 7 GENERATIONS
