Harm Reduction Series:

Blood Tribe Addictions Framework- Building on Rich Stories & Deep Wisdom

We welcome you to join us for the next session in the First Nations Telehealth Network’s Harm Reduction Series. The Blood Tribe Addiction Framework, Kattakinoona Awaahkapiiyaawa – Bringing the Spirits Home, was developed in collaboration between the Blood Tribe Department of Health, the Blood Tribe Chief & Council and Alberta Health Services in response to the on-going impacts and effects of the opioid crisis. The framework was developed using extensive feedback, rich stories, and deep wisdom from the community; and enhanced with information from relevant research, literature and evidence. The result is a community-wide, comprehensive, full-continuum of care addiction framework that is grounded in the Blackfoot culture and based on the Blood Tribe population, geography, needs and resources.
