Alcohol & Other Drug Abuse


Mission & Vision

OUR MISSION is to reduce the prevalence and incidences of alcoholism and other drug dependencies. We strive to maximize positive behavioral health and resiliency within individuals, families and the larger community.   We support the efforts of Native American communities toward achieving excellence in holistic rehabilitation and prevention services for individuals and their families.   We advocate for Native Americans service providers by actively participating in professional, regulatory, educational and community organizations at the national, state, urban and Tribal levels.  

OUR VISION is to support the unique balance resiliency and strength of our Native American Cultures. We, at the Bad River AODA prevention program, strive to support the Tribal / Native community in reducing under-age drinking (especially binge drinking) along with other drug abuse by promoting health, resilience and strength.
