The UIHI is pleased to announce the release of two new reports addressing substance abuse prevention and treatment in American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
The first report, Supporting Sobriety Among American Indians and Alaska Natives: A Literature Review, includes a letter of introduction by Daniel Dickerson, DO, MPH (Psychiatrist at UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs and United American Indian Involvement, Inc.). This report describes the context of substance abuse in urban AI/AN communities, synthesizes academic and grey literature and summarizes existing programs to highlight approaches to address substance abuse through outreach, education, screening and treatment. The report concludes with recommendations for future research, programming and policy.
The second report, Supporting Wellness: Substance Abuse Services at Urban Indian Health Organizations, documents the critical services available at Urban Indian Health Organizations (UIHOs) to address substance abuse needs. The report also highlights programmatic achievements and factors contributing to success; presents vignettes of select UIHOs and provides key recommendations to support future efforts to address substance abuse needs in urban American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
Both reports were developed through the UIHI’s Promoting Health Equity for Urban American Indians and Alaska Natives Project with funding support from the Office of Minority Health.
