The Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council has joined forces with the state to tackle the problem of youth binge drinking and prescription drug abuse. The Lac Du Flambeau, Menomonee, La Courte, and Bad River tribes will be the beneficiaries of the grant. The main project is a 36-bed residential facility that will be established to support Native American youth between the ages of 13 and 17. The facility will focus on treating children and teens with substance use disorders or any co-occurring mental health conditions. The services provided will be culturally relevant, with a strong focus on treating the individual rather than just the disease. Both Native and non-Native youth will have access to the services, but Native youth will be given priority.


Windward provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering, as well as security design services, for a flexible wellness and substance abuse treatment prototype for adolescents. The facility spans an area of 25,000 square feet and includes a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, as well as both indoor and outdoor group therapy spaces.
