Gookomis Endaad is designed to feel like clients are at “grandma’s house”. This homelike setting will allow clients to feel safe, at home and comfortable enough to focus on their underlying needs while moving towards being “whole” and independent. Gookomis Endaad is designed to be a stepping stone, where clients can receive services and treatment for 45 days with a 45-day extension or more, if necessary.

Staff at Gookomis Endaad offers a Mental Health and AODA Counselor, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Licensed Nurse, Clinical Social Worker and a Cultural Liaison. Recovery Coaches assist clients daily as they move through the program schedule and chaperone outside activities. Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), the behavioral modification model is taught and utilized in every aspect of the program. Clients move through not only MRT levels but through a second level system that allows clients to earn increased privileges as they practice and demonstrate positive behavior and attitudes in individual and group therapies and activities of daily living.
