Indian Health Service Youth Regional Treatment Center Aftercare Pilot Project
A grant for a youth regional treatment center aftercare pilot project designed to address the gap in services that occurs when youth are discharged upon successful completion of a Youth Regional Treatment Center (YRTC) program and return to their home community where necessary support systems may not exist. The goal of this pilot project is to develop promising practices between YRTCs and Tribal communities to reduce alcohol and substance use relapse by identifying transitional services that can be culturally adapted to meet the needs of AI/AN youth to increase resiliency, self-coping, and provide support systems.
The awarded project will:
- Provide aftercare and case management services
- Create and train community support systems in evidence-based care
- Identify and implement best practices for increasing access to transitional services
- Incorporate social media into aftercare practices
- Increase data collection for post residential discharged youth
- Evaluate and disseminate information among all YRTC facilities
Eligible applicants include:
- Federally recognized tribes
- Alaska native villages, groups, or regional/village corporations
- Tribal organizations
