Substance Abuse Treatment Centers across the country have taken steps to become a Wellbriety Certified Treatment Center. They have met specific criteria by utilizing principles, methods and resources from the Wellbriety approach within their programs. White Bison receives inquiries on a weekly basis for referrals to residential treatment services. We refer individuals and families to our Wellbriety Certified Treatment Centers to assist Native Americans/Alaska Natives in finding treatment by using culturally-based approaches. Each year White Bison reassesses Wellbriety Certified Treatment Centers to ensure all requirements are continuously being met.
