The Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe Addictions and Dependencies (A & D) Program is responsible for providing assessment and treatment for substance use disorders, and domestic violence prevention services for Leech Lake Band members and other Native American people residing on the Leech lake Reservation.

It is the goal of the Leech lake A & D Program to promote recovery and wellness for individuals, families, and communities through empowerment and freedom from violence and chemical abuse/dependency in a culturally sensitive environment while utilizing community resources when available to help achieve this goal.

The Human Services Division is committed to the Ojibwe communities well-being with holistic, integrated, community based services that offer hope, encouragement and inspiration to individuals, families and communities.

Our team of professional counselors is available to assist clients with developing concrete plans to help begin and build recovery in a culturally specific treatment setting while adhering to Rule 31 treatment standards for the delivery of treatment services.
