The History of The Biidaaban Healing Lodge

In the early 1980’s, the disease of Alcoholism was the primary problem faced by many of the First Nation families and communities. There was a movement of aboriginal people accessing drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities that failed to acknowledge our different approaches to life.

Respect the
freedom of one's self

The Biidaaban Healing Lodge is a 12 unit facility that provides the Aboriginal population in the Robinson-Superior Area with Residential and Community-based Programming. We are located in the Ojibways of Pic River First Nation on the shores of Lake Superior.
