NMC Wellness Center is a safe place to begin the healing our villages and communities need. NMC provides a non-judgmental environment for Native youth and Families to develop the life and coping skills needed to have a healthy life we all deserve.
By helping Indigenous youth and families find their identity through Native American art classes and focus groups, increases the distance from substance and alcohol abuse and closes the gap to culturally sound practices that have a positive impact on the Journey to Wellness.

NMC Wellness Center offers a wide array of services that are culturally sensitive and have a holistic approach to wellness. NMC is proud and humbled to provide PEER SUPPORT SERVICES
Peer support are people who have been successful in the recovery process who help others experiencing similar situations. Through shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment, peer support workers help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse. Peer support services can effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting into the everyday environment of those seeking a successful, sustained recovery process.
Peer Support Role NMC Peer support Specialists engage in a wide range of activities. These include:
Peer support roles may also extend to the following:
NMC Peer support specialist has developed additional certifications to provide services to specific groups who also share common experiences, such as family members. The shared experience of being in recovery from a mental health and/or substance use condition or being a family member is the foundation on which the peer recovery support relationship is built in the behavioral health arena. Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
The Wellness Recovery Action Plan® or WRAP®, is a self-designed prevention and wellness process that anyone can use to get well, stay well, and make their life the way they want it to be. It was developed in 1997 by a group of people who were searching for ways to overcome their own mental health issues and move on to fulfilling their life dreams and goals. It is now used extensively by people in all kinds of circumstances, and by health care and mental health systems all over the world to address all kinds of physical, mental health, and life issues. WRAP Will Help You:
WRAP is for anyone, any time. It will support you in being the way you want to be and doing the things you want to do.
“When the group developed WRAP, I was so impressed that I went home and wrote one for myself. As I began to live WRAP, my life changed dramatically. Over time I felt better and better and better. WRAP is a way of life for me—a great life.” — Mary Ellen Copeland, Ph.D., author of the original Wellness Recovery Action Plan
