Offers funding to increase access to community-based prevention strategies, including social detoxification services, for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations with alcohol use disorder (AUD) and other substance use disorders (SUD) in McKinley County, New Mexico. Proposals must include the 3 critical components of community-based social detoxification:

  • Evaluation
  • Stabilization
  • Fostering patient readiness for and entry into treatment

PARD is an initiative of the IHS Alcohol and Substance Abuse Branch (ASAB).

Required activities include:

  • Evaluating clients encountering the detoxification program through drug-testing, measuring client coordination and concentration, screening for co-occurring mental and physical conditions, and comprehensive assessment of clients' medical, psychological, social conditions, including historical trauma
  • Stabilizing clients in detoxification by supporting them through acute intoxication and withdrawal until they are medically stable and substance free, familiarizing patients with the detoxification process, providing meals, showers, hygiene kits, and other daily living necessities
  • Fostering readiness for the clients' entry into AUD or SUD treatment by stressing the importance of clients completing their treatment plans, providing patients encouragement to continue in treatment, offering recovery pathways and connecting clients to treatment after detoxification, and measuring the overall treatment process and results for individuals during and after detoxification

Applicants are encouraged to develop work plans that emphasize cross-system collaboration, the inclusion of family and social support systems, community resources, and culturally appropriate approaches.
