The Recovery Program


With experience and hope, we support the long-term recovery from the effects of substance abuse. 

With information, resources and encouragement, we support the recovering individual, and their family, to live in a healthy and honorable way.

In this way, we all benefit….

The Sacred Circle Family Recovery (SCFR) Project - Recovery Coach Program at White Earth is the first of its kind on a MN reservation.  Our purpose is to help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process and, hopefully, reduce the likelihood of relapse. The Recovery Coach program is designed and delivered by peers and allies who have been successful in the recovery process.

Our core mission is to encourage and support long term recovery from substance abuse.  Our primary focus is on the White Earth member and others living on or near the White Earth Reservation.  We include the family wherever possible as we know this is a family disease.  We make weekly telephone calls, meet person-to-person in our office or off-site, set goals, search for resources, offer incentives and encouragement as the recoveree makes their way in a life without substance abuse.   There are many avenues to recovery so we advocate for the recoveree to voice what they need and want for their life.  It is not our job to do this life work for them.

The SCFR Recovery Coach program is a volunteer-based program with two paid staff.  Available volunteer opportunities are: Recovery Coach, Telephone Recovery Support, activity planning, public speaking, office work, etc.  See boxes below. 

Our mentor, the Southern Minnesota Recovery Connection provides the intensive Recovery Coach training.  White Earth has a resource room for volunteers equipped with a computer, printer, written materials, and telephone.  Our goal is to build a crew of Recovery coaches and telephone support persons to serve the recoveree who wants some added support in their new way of living.  Please note that a background check is required for certain positions.
