Preventing Alcohol-Related Deaths through Social Detoxification


This is only a forecast. The synopsis and application package are not yet posted, and we have not yet finalized the application due date. This opportunity will be updated when it is published in the Federal Register.The purpose of this program is to reduce alcohol related mortality among the American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) population by providing support to programs and community-based strategies that provide detoxification services to members of the AI/AN population in or near Tribal and Urban Indian communities. The applicant must use 100 percent of the Indian Health Service (IHS) grant funds for services provided to AI/AN persons. A consensus among clinical and subject matter experts understand detoxification does not provide the full spectrum of alcohol and/or substance use disorder treatment but can serve as a pathway to seeking treatment and as a component in the continuum of care for alcohol and substance use disorders. The detoxification program must adhere to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) 45, which identifies the principle for the basis of the TIP. The detoxification program must include the three critical components - evaluation, stabilization, and fostering patient readiness for and entry into treatment.
