Healing Lodge

Mission Statement

As the wabanaki people, we acknowledge the need for each client to learn and practice the holstic approach to self-healing. We promote all aspects of the medicine wheel, which include the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, values and beliefs passed down to us by our elders.


We, the staff at the Wolastoqewiyik Healing Lodge, believe addiction affects all aspects of the body, mind and spirit, which can be healed through a holistic process to reconnect to a presence greater then ourselves.
