There is an immediate need to bring Native Americans back to their innate leadership abilities and understanding of the sacredness of families and their role as fathers & mothers established by their forefathers.

Family is the most important institution of which any strong society is built upon.  NAFFA Wellness is one of the first programs of its kind to teach clients how to change, solve their problems, overcome addictions and become leaders in their families through three central pillars founded on sound Native principles.

Pillar 1: Self Worth

Strong self worth is the foundation of our ability to believe in ourselves.  Every single person has value and worth, you are precious.  All important decisions have direct correlation to self worth.


  It is important to understand how parents greatly influence their children's lives, both the positive and negative influences are vital in forming self worth.  When parents have a strong sense of self worth, they are motivated to teach their children how valuable they are to their family and society.

Pillar 2: Personal Identity

Personal Identity  is  the perception we have developed about ourselves over the course of our life.  This includes things we can and cannot control such as: lifestyle, culture, family, skin color, gender or body image.  The only way for you to sort your way through all perceptions comes only through and by truth.

You are the only one who can find your personal identity.  It is up to you to shape the person you want to become by choosing the people you identify and associate with.  One of the most important missions of life is to find your true, personal identity.

Pillar 3: Purpose

Purpose brings direction, discipline, motivation and meaning.  When you have and know your purpose, you are more determined to solve problems to reach your goals.  Remembering your purpose gives you momentum to continue forward in difficult times.

Individual purpose can be lightened or darkened by those you choose to be with. Helping your loved ones and community see the central purpose will be a unifying experience as you work through fun and challenging times together.
