TeeJuh is a program of the Native Village of Dot Lake with a focus on ending Domestic Violence, Substance Misuse, and Suicide. We established TeeJuh in 2020 in response to a serious problem with Methamphetamine that erupted in the village.
Because Methamphetamine is a highly addictive and dangerous drug, many social problems came with it. We listened and responded to many complaints and calls for help from tribal members and we are now prepared to provide support and services
tailored to the different needs of community members.
TeeJuh is physically located in the tribal council office and has several well-trained
and experienced staff members to assist you with getting a variety of needs
met. Most of all we strive to make our services accessible and effective. We
are able to assist with patient advocacy, domestic violence safety plans,
requests to access substance abuse treatment, and mental health therapy.
In order to maintain high-quality staffing, TeeJuh utilizes a telebehavioral health system. We have staff at the office to assist you with use of the computer and other
systems to give you the best resources for your healing journey. We realize the
decision to seek services from TeeJuh is a very personal one. We work to make
you comfortable every step of the way.
Like all other behavioral health programs, TeeJuh has a registration process that helps us to know where you are for the sake of safety and to ensure that we keep accurate records. Most of our services are grant funded and require that we collect the basic
information needed to identify you. None of your identifying information will
ever be shared with any outside source. We are bound by a law that states your
privacy is paramount. This law is called HIPAA (Health Information Portability
and Accountability Act). The penalties for violating this law can be drastic.
Fortunately, we have had no incidents of such a violation.
To get started, we ask that you call our main phone number (907) 882-5556. You will be asked about computer access in your home so that you can fill out Registration
paperwork in a safe and confidential setting. If you need help with computer
access, please come to the tribal council office.
