BENEFITING: Medicine Wheel Recovery Services
Medicine Wheel Recovery Services approaches healing by addressing the delicate balance of physical health, mental and emotional health, social and cultural connection, community involvement, environmental responsibility, and spirituality. With treatment that provides education, counseling, activities, and support to the recovering individual and the family. Medicine Wheel Recovery Services is committed to the community and will provide Columbia County with increased jobs, community growth, sustainable environmental practices, community education and safety. Columbia County has continued to see a sharp increase in drug related activity, crimes and arrests while also seeing a decline in individuals being able to access needed services. Throughout the State of Oregon there is a shortage of residential treatment options available with the average wait-list being 3-4 months before getting into residential treatment. Here in Columbia County there is a tremendous need for residential treatment for individuals who have addiction and unaddressed mental health needs. Medicine Wheel Recovery Services will help address these issues by bringing a nonprofit residential treatment facility to our county which is lacking in service availability to meet the overwhelming need of our community. As you can imagine, an undertaking of this size is costly and we want to offer individuals access to the best services possible. To offset the cost of the start-up we are working with local individuals and businesses to secure monetary donations toward bringing these desperately needed services to our county. We ask you to join us in our mission by donating to this worthy cause.
