The Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians Behavioral Health Program is available for Cow Creek Tribal Members, Tribal Affiliates, employees, and their families, as well as all who qualify for reception at the Cow Creek Health & Wellness Center.
We are one component in a comprehensive continuum of care for the intervention of mental health and alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse in Douglas County. Our program allows our members to heal and contribute to their self, family, Tribe, and Community.
Our Behavioral Health Treatment Program is reviewed and licensed by the Oregon Health Authority. Our letters of Approval for these services are current. Our Therapists are dual licensed through the Oregon State Board of Social Workers and certified through the Addiction Counselor Certification Board of Oregon, and follow the ethics agreement of both boards.
We are a Dual Diagnosis Culturally Competent Facility, with full capability to serve co-occurring disorders. We provide wrap-around services through our multidisciplinary team, made up of both adult and adolescent chemical dependency counselors, mental health professionals, medical and other professionals. Together, this multidisciplinary forum serves the best interests of our individuals. All this helps our Behavioral Health Treatment Program to excel!
We offer a wide variety of services, from prevention to intervention to treatment. We partner with a number of community agencies to educate professionals and consumers about mental health wellness, alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse. The vast majority of our prevention efforts are through the work we do with children and adolescents. As well, we offer prevention activities that enhance our Tribal youth in enhancing their cultural knowledge.
The Cow Creek Tribe Prevention program is very active in advocating for the current and future well-being of Cow Creek Tribal members by promoting healthy lifestyles. Our prevention events and activities provide information on high-risk topics such as suicide, tobacco, and alcohol & drug abuse. Prevention activities are held throughout the year in the Canyonville and Roseburg areas. The prevention activities help to engage and to bring together the Tribal community.
Information is disseminated during these activities to make you aware of how you can help preserve the tribal community and safeguard your family members.
Our Prevention & Behavioral Health Staff are certified trainers and offer workshops in QPR (Question, Refer, and Persuade) and ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training). We offer these trainings to our community to help reduce risk of suicide by training individuals how to have those conversations with someone they suspect might be at risk for suicide. QPR is a training that takes about 2 hours and the ASIST is a 2 day training that is more in-depth.
