Jackson Lake is located about a half-hour’s drive from downtown Whitehorse, off of the Fish Lake road. It is in Kwanlin Dün’s traditional territory. For the past five years, we have had one or two intakes per year for on-the-land residential treatment programs at the Centre. Some programs have been for men, others for women. The participants have included people from Yukon First Nations, other First Nations from outside the territory and non-First Nation Yukoners.
The programming at the Centre integrates First Nation cultural ways of healing and clinical approaches.
