  • Objectives
    The Indigenous Wellness and Addictions Prevention program (IWAP) is designed to give you the skills and knowledge necessary for employment in urban and Aboriginal settings. Through the promotion of personal and spiritual growth within the healing process, you will acquire the ability to address your own needs and those of individual clients or groups. Traditional methods of healing include Sacred Circles, Teaching Circles, and the use of the four sacred medicines - tobacco, cedar, sage and sweetgrass - to promote an understanding of the physical, mental, social, cultural and spiritual elements of addiction and aspects of recovery, assessment and intervention techniques. You will gain respect and understanding of the Aboriginal culture and focus on increased effectiveness within the health care field. A unique program continuum has been designed to allow you to determine the length of time and the certifications you wish to receive in this program. If you enrol for one year, you will receive a certificate in Indigenous Wellness and Addictions Prevention
