Finding Your Path

The path to recovery from substance misuse is different for everyone.

Thomas X, a Red Lake Reservation community leader, artist, and filmmaker, shows the importance of using your cultural heritage, community, and faith in your recovery journey.

“The Path” explores the urgent need to address the opioid crisis in American Indian communities through a cultural and traditional healing lens, highlighting that recovery can be a communal effort while also being tailored to you.

When you are ready to take the next step, there are resources to support you and your background.


Know The Dangers has partnered with Thomas, to create other videos including “Mashkawitoon,” “We Are the Medicine,” and “Zhaagoojiton.”

We are thrilled to collaborate with him again, to create “The Path.” A meaningful story that showcases the different recovery options supported by community, culture, and connection and reminding us that there is no one path to recovery.
