Company Description
The Friendship House Association of American Indians is a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt organization, established in 1963 to serve American Indians who were relocated from their reservations to the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 1963, Friendship House has served more than 5,500 residential clients and hundreds of youth consumers and provided community-focused events for countless numbers of American Indians. As a cultural center with co-located services and community activities, Friendship House is uniquely poised in the San Francisco Bay area to serve American Indians.

The overarching goal of Friendship House is to promote healing and wellness in the American Indian community by providing a continuum of services that build resiliency to substance abuse. And to strengthen connections to family and community to improve the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical well-being of American Indians across the lifespan.

Friendship House operates three program facilities: the Friendship House American Indian Healing Center, an 80- bed adult men and women residential substance abuse treatment facility located in San Francisco, California; the Friendship House American Indian Lodge, a 9-bed facility for women and their children located in Oakland, California; and the Friendship House Youth Program, an afterschool youth center, located in San Francisco, California.

The Friendship House’s Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Program was established to reduce the incidence of alcohol and drug abuse among American Indians through services designed to strengthen the personal conditions which support a substance-free lifestyle. In addition to restoring clients to productive living individuals in their respective communities. Prayer, songs and drum circles, sweat lodge ceremonies, talking circles, Walking the Red Road Medicine Way, and many other traditional methods are integral to the residential treatment program.

While many best practices in the substance abuse treatment field have been proven to work effectively with substance abusers from many backgrounds, few evidence-based practices have been evaluated and proven to work with Native people. We know, based on more than 28 years of tracking our own performance, that American Indians have the best outcomes when Native culture and cultural practices are honored, as well as integrated into our service delivery efforts.
