Blue Mountain Associates, Inc. was first developed in 2003 to assist and support existing alcohol/drug abuse programs on a tribal reservation. The origianal Board of Directors put the program on sabbatical when the President of the Board accepted a tribal position in California. The program was re-activated on 2005.
The Blue Mountain Lodge program was then developed by enrolled members of the Northern Arapaho Nation for American Indians, however the clientele has never been exclusive and has provided services for all individuals. The originators are professional people with university degrees who have spent many years among Indian reservations developing and implementing chemical abuse programs, and their life style is traditional with a great respect for the ceremonial ways of all tribal peoples.
