IHS: Preventing Alcohol-Related Deaths (PARD) Through Social Detoxification
The purpose of the program is to increase access to community-based prevention strategies that provide social detoxification, evaluation, stabilization, fostering patient readiness for and entry into treatment for alcohol use, and other substance use disorders. To ensure that comprehensive, culturally appropriate personal and public health services are available and accessible to AI/AN people, the PARD project is designed to provide communities the ability to reduce alcohol-related mortality and encourage clients to seek additional alcohol and/or substance use disorder treatment after discharge from a detoxification program. IHS will use this funding to focus on the provision of services in Tribal and Urban Indian communities with the highest burden of alcohol-related deaths among AI/AN persons.
The PARD program requires applicants to review the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) https://www.samhsa.gov/resource/ebp/tip-45-detoxification-substance-abuse-treatment), which identifies the principle for the basis of the TIP. The PARD program must include the three critical components—evaluation, stabilization, and fostering patient readiness for and entry into treatment. The three critical components identified in the SAMHSA TIP 45 will serve as the program objectives that each applicant will be required to meet.
Eligibility: To be eligible for this funding opportunity you must be a public or private institution operated by a state, local, Tribal, or private entity that operates direct, on-site alcohol and/or substance use disorder treatment services, including social alcohol detoxification services, to AI/AN persons. For purposes of this announcement, “institution” means an entity that provides substance use disorder treatment services including detoxification. Applicants must be able to start services on the first day of the award. Applicants must serve AI/AN persons.
