Native Addictions Council of Manitoba

Healing of our mind, body and spirit for our future generations

Statement from the Native Addictions Council of Manitoba

In our new season of growth, the work we do with the Indigenous community is to empower individuals in their journey of healing and recovery of addictions. The Native Addictions Council of Manitoba has a sacred responsibility in the work that we do.

Guided by the Seven Sacred Teachings of Love, Respect, Courage, Honesty, Wisdom, Humility, and Truth and in light of recent activities in Canada, we have chosen to decolonize our language.

We will no longer refer to those in our programs as “clients” or “patients” as the root of those words are disempowering. NACM works in a strength-based way and as Indigenous peoples, we know what our communities and families need. Therefore, to respect the individuals and families we work with, our language will change to “relatives”, “participants”, and “applicants.”

The work we do with Indigenous communities is to empower individuals on their journey of healing and recovery from addictions. We honour our Indigenous Relatives and walk along side them through their journey with kindness, love, respect, and empowerment.
