Over 49 Years of Service

As of February 21, 2021, the Native Addictions Council of Manitoba has been in operation for 49 years.

In our new season of growth, the work we do with Indigenous Community is to empower individuals in thier journey of healing and recovery of addictions. The Native Addictions Council of Manioba has a sacred responsibility in the work that we do.

In light of the tragic history of Canada and in the process of assimilation and genocide, here at N.A.C.M., we want to begin decolonizing our language, approach, and perspective in working with Indigenous People.

We want to work in a good way that is in line with the Seven Sacred Teachings: Love, Respect, Courage, Honesty, Wisdom, Humiltiy, and Truth.

We will no longer refer to those in our programs as "client" or "patients" - the root of those workds is disempowerment. N.A.C.M. works in a strength-based way and as Indigenous People, we know what our communities and familes need. Therefore, with respect for the individuals and families we work with, our language will change to "relatives", "participants", and "applicants".

Indigenous people are strong, resilient, and we will honour people that struggle with addictions through kindness, love, respect, and empowerment. We are grounded by a sacred connection to Mother Earth and N.A.C.M. will continue our commitment to walk alongside our Relatives in thier journey of healing.
