At the Northwest Indian Treatment Center in Elma, Washington, a Healing Garden allows patients receiving treatment for drug and alcohol addiction to incorporate traditional plants and herbs into their recovery, reconnecting them to their culture. Run by the Squaxin Island Tribe, the center established a Native Foods Nutrition Project to increase patients’ access to and knowledge of traditional foods. Weekly classes teach patients to grow, harvest and cook these foods; and patients leave the facility with a certificate in traditional foods.
