In early August, a coalition of tribal communities blessed ground that will be the site of a new adolescent recovery and wellness center in Oneida County, near Tomahawk. The center will include 36 residential beds supporting youth ages 13-17 and provide culturally relevant services and treatment. The facility, which will focus on Native American youth but will be open to other teens as space allows, has drawn both support and opposition from residents and lawmakers.
Shereen Siewert welcomes Bryan Bainbridge, the CEO of the Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council, to discuss plans for the facility and the services planned to address substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions among teens. He’ll also address concerns expressed by some critics who have questions about the project.
