SAMHSA Program Focus and Tribal Opioid Response

Based upon local data, there is a need towards increasing access to treatment for opioid use disorder. The need for our proposed Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) project stems from evidence related to substance misuse rates at large.

Wyandotte Nation proposes a prevention project through the SAMHSA Program titled
Tribal Opioid Response. Our scope of work focuses not only on increasing access to treatment, but a reduction in unmet treatment needs and opioid overdose related deaths.

Project Goal #1: Increase access to culturally appropriate and evidence-based treatment
for opioid use disorder.

Project Goal #2: Reduce unmet treatment needs and opioid overdose related deaths by
10% through the provision of prevention, treatment, and recovery support services.

Objective #1: By the 24th month of the project period, Wyandotte Nation will have
developed and implemented one (1) comprehensive Tribal Opioid Response Program to address
the opioid crisis in our tribal community

Education

The most common beneficiaries of this project will be Native youth utilizing one or more
of the key activities, such as the Afterschool Program and Summer Program. Activities will include tutoring, gardening, recreational sports, family circle events, which will incorporate native specific cultural activities, and tribal leaders sharing stories with Native youth. A Project Assistant will pick up youth after school and during the summer in order to participate in the program. Participants will also have the opportunity to attend canoe trips on Elk and Spring River.

Healthcare

At the Bearskin Health Clinic, our family practitioners can effectively diagnose and treat patients of all ages with a vast array of conditions. With a family medical doctor, you can gain greater continuity of care because the same person is treating each member of your family.

Bearskin Health Clinic is open to the public and accepts most insurances, Medicare and Medicaid providers, and is always accepting new patients of all ages. The clinic offers X-ray referrals to our tribal patients whose health situation requires the services of an X-ray technician. The clinic’s referred pharmacies are also prompt, convenient, and ready to serve all our patients with prescription-filling needs.

Incentive Programs
