The ARCH Model

NWWC’s New Facility in Pouce Coupe

The new NWWC facility is in line with the Province of British Columbia's objective of making substance use care more seamless, better integrated, and easier to access. It has received strong support from various organizations such as Treaty 8 Tribal Association, Peace River Regional District, First Nations Health Authority, Streetohome Foundation, Northern Health, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, BC Housing, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, and other local communities.

The centre's ARCH model will offer an opportunity for individuals in the community to stay engaged and local to receive substance use disorder treatment, recovery support and supportive housing. The ARCH project will provide a complete range of care, incorporating best practices and learnings that combine traditional Indigenous healing and Western medicine practices. The new facility will serve as a culturally safe living space for individuals who wish to address their substance use and create a future of wellness for themselves.
