The Saddle Lake Healing Centre offers on-site treatment for the Saddle Lake People, both in the context of traditional and contemporary Cree values.

Through a series of health needs assessments, analysis of existing programs and a review of the community’s development plan, the design team was able to create a facility that gives the community independence and self-sufficiency.

In addition to the programming offered by former facilities, the Healing Centre offers alcohol and drug addition rehabilitation, treatment and counseling programs previously unavailable in the community.

Settled on a retreat-like site that is physically removed from the Village itself, the Saddle Lake Healing Centre provides a positive and private space to ensure the holistic wellness of the Saddle Lake people well into the future.
