“We believe in honoring ourselves by living
an honest, sober balanced life”
The HOPI Substance Abuse Prevention Center (HSAPC), opened its doors in November 2003. Our services are open to anyone who wants help or information about substance use or abuse. We serve Hopi, other tribes and non-natives residing on Hopi.
A person may walk in during regular business hours and see a Mentor that is available or may schedule a time. A person may phone our office and talk with a Mentor to find support immediately. We do provide services to elderly adolescents with signed releases from parents or guardians. Mentors work with the individual, family or group, whether the person is an alcoholic/addict or a family member of an addicted person.
Mentoring is done with the emphasis on addiction and its process, its effects on self, family, spirituality and health. We also focus on relapse prevention; give support and encouragement to change. We support self-help groups of the 12 step variety, encouraging persons we work with to attend, even working the 12 steps with families and individuals.
We use videos, audio tapes, books, and/or worksheets in helping an individual find their way to healing. Presentations are made to community, service providers, tribal programs, organizations schools. Topics may range from the disease of alcoholism, methamphetamine use, family roles in an alcoholic home, or other ways of healing.
