Preventing Alcohol-Related Deaths (PARD) through Social Detoxification
In 2017, IHS received $2,000,000 of funding to focus on the provision of services in the Navajo and Great Plains IHS Areas to address alcohol-related deaths of Tribal members occurring in communities that were facing urgent needs for substance abuse treatment, residential services, and detoxification services. Preventing Alcohol-Related Deaths (PARD) through Social Detoxification is an IHS cooperative agreement that will serve to increase access to community-based prevention strategies to provide social detoxification, evaluation, stabilization, fostering patient readiness for and entry into treatment for alcohol use disorders and when appropriate, other substance use disorders. Grantees must have a fully operational and staffed social detoxification program that provides all three critical components of the detoxification process that primarily serves American Indians in the Navajo and Great Plains areas.
