Warrior Down

Picture1 Warrior DownWarrior Down is a community based support program to help those returning from prison, from treatment, and from military combat zones to reenter the community.  Warrior Down is based upon the Native American Medicine Wheel and 12 Step program developed by White Bison.  The concept behind the Warrior Down is that reentering the community is a process that needs to be supported by members of the community. Mutual support networks (people helping people) can make sure that individuals receive the support they need in order to maintain a healthy and sober lifestyle.    If you want to start a Warrior Down program in your community please contact White Bison, Inc.   If you would like to see how a Warrior Down program has been implemented in one commuity see Wellbriety for Prisons.    

Veterans:

See the pamplet for information about implementing a program for Veterans in your community.  Training for the Medicine Wheel and 12 Steps and Warrior Down can be found at the National Wellbriety Training Institute.  Also check the Veterans page for resources for military families and veterans.
