Leading Thunderbird Lodge

The File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council and Touchwood Agency Tribal Council envisioned a new facility that would address a growing need – the treatment of youth who were experiencing addictions with drugs, alcohol and solvents. They envisioned a facility that would assist in building strong individuals based on a holistic treatment program that addressed the realms of: spiritual, physical, psychological and social well-being. There vision became a reality when the doors to Leading Thunderbird Lodge opened in January 2007.

Leading Thunderbird Lodge is a residential youth treatment facility located in the beautiful Qu’Appelle Valley in the Village of Fort San, approximately five minutes from the Town of Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan.

Residential programming is geared towards male youth who are between the ages of 12 – 17. The Lodge has a capacity of 15 residential beds and is also building an Outreach component that will not only assist in the pre and post admission process for residential treatment, but is also creating a menu of educational presentations on topics such as: alcoholism, marijuana, solvents and other drugs. Families and referral agencies will have another resource through Leading Thunderbird Lodge in establishing preventative measures for youth addictions within their communities.
