Mission Statement

The abuse of alcohol and/or drugs, and the related effects on the individual, family, community and the Tribe is the major health problem for the Native American.

The American Indian Human Resource Center recognizes alcoholism and drug addiction as being treatable and socially amendable by prevention through a coordinated multidisciplinary and inter-tribal effort. The American Indian Human Resource Center is committed to working with other tribal programs, state, and local agencies to provide a comprehensive range of services to the client and his/her family.

Native American enrolled members, primarily enrolled Winnebago Tribal members and non-native people residing in the Winnebago community. Those under 18 years of age will need parental consent.
