Culturally Competent Substance Abuse Treatment

Culturally Competent Substance Abuse Treatment

The following providers were awarded a grant from July 1, 2014 - June 30, 2016, to implement Culturally Competent Substance Abuse Treatment pilot projects (CCTP), through a request for proposal process:

  1. Area Substance Abuse Council, Linn County
  2. Jackson Recovery Services Inc., Woodbury County
  3. Season's Center, Sioux - Buena Vista

The objectives of the CCTP are to:

  1. Increase substance abuse treatment options for targeted cultural, ethnic, or racial populations.
  2. Provide substance abuse treatment services using evidence-based methods or curricula that have demonstrated positive outcomes with the target population.
  3. Identify barriers and work with community supportive services to assist clients to participate in and complete CCTP services.
  4. Assess CCTP effectiveness and client outcomes by maintaining contact with clients for six (6) months after discharge.
  5. Disseminate CCTP information including, but not limited to, programming, lessons learned, community involvement, and outcomes.
  6. Train staff to work more effectively with the target population.
  7. Measure cultural competence and cultural satisfaction of clients, family members and staff.
