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:

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

The objectives of the CCTP are to:

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