Comprehensive Prenatal Care with Integrated Substance Abuse Treatment for American Indian Women

Project Term: 12 months; Ended 2016
Grant Amount: $25,000

Saint Vincent Healthcare and tribal health partners seek to improve maternal-child health outcomes for American Indian women and their newborns by validating current barriers encountered in accessing prenatal and substance abuse treatment. This one-year grant will support a partnership between Saint Vincent Healthcare in Billings and the Northern Cheyenne tribe to develop a tribally-led pilot program to address drug use during pregnancy. The program seeks to increase early entry into prenatal care by refining a trusted model of care for prenatal care and integrate supportive services and substance abuse treatment. Exploratory conversations will also be held to extend this program to the Crow tribe.
