New meth treatment program opens in Flagstaff

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Native Americans for Community Action, Inc. (NACA) announced the opening of Serene Spirits, a new outpatient program to treat Native American adults and adolescents impacted by methamphetamine use.

"Meth is a drug that has devastating effects upon the lives of many individuals as well as families. We are pleased to offer an effective and voluntary treatment program at no cost to participants," said Martha Scranton, Director of Behavioral Health Services.

Run by two experienced counselors, the 16-week program offers group, individual, and family counseling in addition to traditional practices, including weekly Talking Circles. Both day and evening groups are available.
