Culturally Competent Substance Abuse Treatment

Culturally Competent Substance Abuse Treatment

The following providers were awarded a grant from October 1, 2010 - June 30, 2012, 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

The goals of the pilot projects 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 with barriers to participate in and complete treatment services,
  4. assess CCTP effectiveness and client outcomes by maintaining contact with clients for six months after discharge,
  5. document and provide program outcomes by working with the Iowa Consortium for Substance Abuse Treatment and Research for coordination, monitoring and evaluation throughout the project,
  6. disseminate CCTP information including, but not limited to, programming, lessons learned, community involvement and outcomes,
  7. train applicant staff to work more effectively with the target population,
  8. Measure cultural competence and cultural satisfaction of clients, family members and staff by administration of pre-and post-surveys.
