The Recovery Movement As Anishnaabek we have endured a remarkable journey over time carrying the seeds of healing deep in our hearts. The grief and trauma resulting from boarding schools, rapid cultural change, lack of economic opportunity, and loss of land have contributed to the high rates of substance abuse and mental health problems experienced by the Anishnaabek families and communities today.
Tribal Initiatives The seeds of healing have grown into a strong recovery movement with committed people. Tribal governments have created behavioral health departments along with policies and procedures to guide the delivery of services including indigenous healing services that are integrated with western approaches.
The Anishnaabek Healing Circle ATR has been able to effectively access funding to support this tribal vision for healing.
Working with multiple tribes has challenges. There are multiple ways to collaborate. A shared vision is key to success. Jingle dress dancers, dance for healing. Anishnaabek people of Michigan. (Odawa, Potawatomi, and Ojibwa)
Tribal Behavioral Health Communication Network Vision Statement: “The spiritual strength of our ancestors will live in the hearts of our people.” The Communication Network is a group of tribal behavioral health stakeholders. The group has been meeting for 30+ years.
Behavioral Health Communication Network Mission Statement: “To advocate for and facilitate the development of indigenous methods for the prevention and treatment of substance abuse and mental health problems based on Anishnaabek values of Love, Respect, Honesty, Bravery, Humility, Truthfulness, and Wisdom; and to evaluate these methods based on indigenous indicators.”

Tribal Recovery Oriented Systems of Care Shifting the model of intervention from acute care of individuals to a sustained recovery management approach relies on partnerships with individuals, families and communities. White & Sanders (2004). ATR II started the “process” of integrating services into a ROSC. ATR III continues that process by identifying key elements to integration.
The Tribal Umbrella Every tribe has programs: every program and department is part of the circle of recovery for an individual. Whatever (and whoever) the individual needs to support their recovery is whatever (and whoever) should be integrated into the circle of recovery. Build on what already exists.
Track 1: Recovery Coaching Strategies Research materials and adopt/modify/develop a curriculum for Recovery Coach training Develop a Cultural Competency Module specific to the needs of the Anishnaabek People of the Three Fires (the target population for ATR). Utilize the module in the RC curriculum and to train ATR network providers Conduct an Anishnaabek Recovery Coach Institute to train the first cohort of recovery coaches from Michigan tribes. Conduct a training for RC supervisors that includes “how to” integration of non-clinical approaches to recovery management
Track 2: A Recovery-Oriented System of Care Identify program qualities that will support a ROSC Identify program qualities that will support Recovery Coaching Develop a strategic plan to obtain “buy-in” from tribal behavioral health and health administrations to implement a ROSC in each of 12 tribes in Michigan Implement the strategic plan to parallel the timeline for certification of the first cohort of Recovery Coaches
Outcomes: Trained Recovery Coaches within each tribal community, who are from each tribal community, who can provide ATR billable recovery management services to the target population. A Recovery Oriented System of Care that includes programs, people and resources, with the consumer at the center of the circle.
Recovery Coach Institute The first Anishnaabek Healing Circle Recovery Coach Institute was held June 4-8, 2012 to train local recovery coaches, recovery coach supervisors and ATR liaisons. Fourteen peer recovery coaches from 8 tribes in Michigan and one in South Dakota completed the training, as did 13 supervisors and ATR tribal liaisons. Trainers came from the Detroit Recovery Program, from Michigan tribal communities and ITC/ATR staff.
Module 1: How to Be a Recovery Coach What is a Recovery Coach? What Do They Do? Strengths-based Recovery Management; Skill Building for the Recovery Coach Fitting the Recovery Coach into the Anishnaabek Healing Circle ATR
Module 2: How to Supervise the Peer Recovery Coach What makes supervising peer recovery coaches different than clinical staff? Role of supervision to recovery coaching Forming a learning community for Recovery Coach supervisors
Module 3: The ATR Tribal Liaison’s Role in Developing a ROSC Pulling it all together: Using ATR reimbursements to fund recovery activities and expand ATR options for consumers; developing tribal umbrellas; budgeting ATR recovery support activities; using recovery coaches as independent contractors
The first cohort of peer recovery coaches and recovery coach supervisors completed a 5 day training in June, 2012. They have returned to their tribal communities to integrate peer recovery coaching into their respective recovery-oriented systems of care.
