Welcome to Nightwind Treatment Centre.
Nightwind Treatment Centre (NWTC) serves young women ages 12 to 17. Kihew House is a 9-bed treatment facility west of Legal and Grandma Turtle House (GMT) is a 4-bed Transitional Semi-Independent Living (T-SIL) program in Westlock.
NWTC provides individualized support in safe and nurturing homelike environments located in rural and small community settings. The vision of NWTC is to have healthy, self-determined and resilient young women capable of reaching their full potential.
The small group environment at NWTC promotes healthy relationships and enhances well-being. Grandma Turtle House supports a healthy and gentle transition for young women into independent living before they return to their community of origin.
NWTC is guided by principles of holistic treatment integrating the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the whole self. Our treatment program is founded upon a synthesis of cultural teachings and trauma-informed practices.
