The White Bison Medicine Wheel & 12-Step Training is returning to the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde on Tuesday through Thursday, April 16-18, at the Tribal Community Center.

The purpose of the Medicine Wheel & 12-Step Training is to teach adults in recovery how to facilitate the Medicine Wheel and 12-Step program in their own communities. The curriculum takes about 16 weeks to complete when implemented in a two-hour weekly format. When participants return to their communities, they set up Circles of Recovery where others in recovery can meet on a regular basis to work their way through the curriculum.

Native Americans working in organizations that specialize in treatment, recovery and wellness, nonNative professionals working in Native American communities, counselors and therapists, prevention specialists, families and community members should attend.

The event is sponsored by the Tribe's Behavioral Health and Social Services programs.
