Evan Sacobie

Director of Apatawsuwikuwam

Located in St. Mary’s First Nation in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Apatawsuwikuwam opened it’s doors in August 2019 with a variety of programs geared towards healthy and sober living. The centre is dedicated to helping people recover from addiction and find their light in life again by providing them with necessary tools to live a life full of purpose and direction and continued personal growth. Their purpose is to increase community members ability to live free from their dependency on alcohol, drugs, tobacco and other addictions, with culture and traditional teachings as the foundation.


Join in the conversation as Evan Sacobie, director of Apatawsuwikuwam, teaches us about how this model had been implemented and the successes they have seen.
