Siksika Health Addictions Services’ Stages of Change Model

Siksika Health Addictions Services follows the Stages of Change model, which supports an individual’s readiness to change their behaviour. The various “stages” describe how a person is thinking and behaving differently as they change over time.

Here, Siksika Nation member, Dale Yellowfly, takes us through his journey to sobriety. Dale’s skillful storytelling describes his experience along the path of the Stages of Change.

Earlier today, Siksika Health Services released the April 2024 Substance Use and Addictions Situational Report (sitrep) for Siksika Nation. We encourage all Siksikawa to review the report, and check in on loved ones who may be struggling with substance use issues.
