The Osage Nation Primary Residential Treatment Center

ABOUT THE OSAGE NATION PRIMARY RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT CENTER

A coordinated effort between Indian Health Service and the Osage Tribe of Oklahoma, the Osage Nation Primary Residential Treatment (PRT) Center is a residential program designed for adults of the Osage Tribe struggling with chemical dependency. Located in Pawhuska, Okla., the residential program also accepts descendants from an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. The facility does not provide on-site detoxification services, and potential clients must complete withdrawal before admission.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to its website, the Osage Nation PRT offers an individualized approach to treatment. Clients must have completed a mental health evaluation with a licensed practical nurse (LPN) before entry.

PRT’s programming blends evidence-based methods, Native American principles, and 12-step principles and practices to help clients acquire sobriety and learn techniques to sustain recovery. The 60-day residential program is one of 22% of facilities in Oklahoma to offer long-term residential care.

During the residential program, clients participate in a structured schedule of group and individual therapy to address the underlying issues that may be contributing to addictive behavior. Clients are also immersed into the 12-step model of recovery. Clients attend on-site 12-step meetings, study fellowship literature, and perform associated “step-work.” Osage Nation spiritual principles are incorporated into the 12-step approach.

As a Native American-influenced treatment program, a variety of culturally relevant principles and traditional activities are incorporated into treatment. Other services offered include recreational therapy, moral recognition therapy (MRT), and education about life skills, parenting, anger management, and relapse prevention.
