Culture And Drugs Don’t Mix” objectives are to educate students about healthy alternatives to drug use and promote knowledge that drugs are not a part of Native culture. The goal of this project is to provide a culturally appropriate approach for drug prevention among Native American youth through community and inter-agency involvement.
This initiative is led by the Office of the Assistant Secretary as part of Generation Indigenous and in collaboration with the Office of Justice Services (OJS) of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE), and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This Training is being hosted by the Anadarko Indian Health Center MSPI Grant and the Wichita & Affiliated Tribes TOR and PFS Program.
This program is an interactive speaker series meant to be facilitated in BIE and Tribally Controlled schools (also appropriate for public schools with high Native American populations!). Each session features speakers from the Office of Justice Services (OJS), a SAMHSA recommended health professional, the local community, and speakers selected by school administrators. Each month focuses on a different theme to guide schools and their selection for their community speaker.
Information on drugs taken from drugabuse.gov and other information taken from the Culture and Drugs Don’t Mix Manual. The program manuals are free for participants and are reproducible! Unfortunately, no CEU’s can be offered for this training.
Lunch will be provided!!
