The KBICSAP Philosophy

Four Aspects: Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional

Services provided at KBICSAP are inclusive of the four aspects of life. We believe that no treatment is complete which does not address your physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional needs.

We believe chemical dependency is a disease, and this disease creates an imbalance and disharmony in one's life. We provide the opportunities and tools for permanent change. The client is the most important part of the treatment team, providing the insights needed to overcome addiction and regain balance.

Our primary goal is to lessen or eliminate the problems caused by substance abuse. Our methods include:
— Assessments
— Treatment planning
— Education
— One-to-One counseling
— Group counseling

Native Ways


In addition to providing modern, CARF-accredited and evidence-based treatment for chemical dependency, we incorporate native ways to help clients achieve harmony, balance, and sustainable success.

The New Day inpatient facility has a cultural consultant on staff and a Sweat Lodge on site. We offer Native American Cultural Teaching and transportation to local ceremonies and events.
