Warriors In Recovery starts up at Dakota Tipi First Nation – PortageOnline.com

Mar 08 2023

Warriors in Recovery started up this week and held its first session last night (Tuesday). Organizer Jonathan Pashe says it’s done in person or by way of online Zoom meetings comprised of recovering addicts helping each other on the road to recovery.

“This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs and alcohol,” says Pashe. “The basic purpose of our service is communication, coordination, information, and guidance. The idea was started in February during our first healing sweat lodge. Now we got 12 First Nations and some guest speakers lined up to come out and visit and share. So, it’s getting pretty big there, so far.”

Pashe says they’re hoping to get more as they progress with more First Nations people in the north.

“But this is for everyone. Everyone’s invited, but yes, we’re trying to get more First Nations communities involved, basically, with the Zoom meetings,” continues Pashe. “We’ve all been through the systems and Colin James is the one who’s setting us all up. He’s been trying to get us going for years, but finally, we’re ready to go.”
