Culture Heals™ is a self-guided journey through short videos and includes self-screening and assessment tools to help identify problems with substance use and/or behavioral addictions. More than 100 engaging videos are organized into learning modules with most videos including links to additional resources like TED Talks, books, and downloadable tools.
The program also includes a free 24/7 crisis hotline where tribal citizens can receive support from trained clinicians.
Since May 2021, the Tribe’s CBS Healing Center has been on a fast track to develop culturally responsive support services that focus on the wellness aspect of tribal citizens and families by expanding programming around prevention, treatment and recovery, and providing direct clinical care to tribal citizens through outpatient individual and group therapy.
Dr. Tina Woods is Senior Director of the CBS Healing Center and worked directly with an Oregon-based company (Digital Therapeutics Group, LLC) to develop Culture Heals™ as part of the 5-Actions Program™.
“Culture Heals is a resource to meet our tribal citizens where they are at physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually,” shared Dr. Woods. “This is a tool not only for those who have never received professional treatment, but also for those presently in treatment or who have experienced treatment in the past. I encourage our tribal citizens to start the journey and signup today to access the wealth of healing resources we can now offer, including culturally responsive videos addressing the roots of addiction such as historical and intergenerational trauma. Even if you’re not ready to take that first step yet, at least watch our three introductory videos for Culture Heals.”
