Tribal & Holistic Therapies
At South Sound Behavioral Hospital
At South Sound Behavioral Hospital, our goal is to provide you with transformative treatment that can assist you in overcoming obstacles. South Sound Behavioral Hospital (SSBH) is committed to providing compassionate, evidence-based care to all tribal communities.
Given our location and proximity to several Native American tribes, we supply outstanding, expert services that respect the traditions and practices of the Native American culture. Our team is dedicated to providing centered care that includes physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellness and healing. These services are rooted in your journey to assist in stabilization.
We combine materials from our curriculum with Native American activities, stories, music, reflection, and connection to a healing journey. Our team is aimed at strengthening your connection to your spiritual wellness by healing your mental being.
In addition, patients have the option to participate in “burning/smudging” ceremonies. During the ceremony, patients are allowed to “let go of the past” by burning written material and are smudged (blessed) with an Eagle feather and sweetgrass or sage.
