Purpose: This pilot project will build on a previous research study conducted by PLEA BC which identified ways the organization could enhance the philosophies and methods used in their drug treatment programming to better serve their Aboriginal youth clients. This project will consist of two individualized support services for Aboriginal youth, a youth Navigator and Elder support. The role of the Navigator will be to provide support to the youth during residential treatment and once they leave to connect with relevant cultural resources within their communities as well as assist youth in reconnecting with their families. The Elders will provide group and individualized interventions as well as provide suggestions and training to PLEA BC on how to make current residential drug treatment curriculums more culturally relevant.
