Community healing is necessary for substance abuse pre- vention. Healthy traditions in the Native American commu- nity are key to effective prevention. The holistic approach to wellness is a traditional part of Native American belief systems. Every Youth is of value in empowering the com- munity. The GONA is a safe place for Youth to share, heal, and plan for action. The GONA provides Native Youth with an indigenous framework to examine historical trau- ma, and its impact on substance abuse and suicidal behav- ior issues, with an emphasis on community empowerment.
