Project Term: 24 months; 2017-2019
Grant Amount: $150,000
This project will establish and begin operation of a methamphetamine in-patient treatment center on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation. The project has three main components. It will: build the capacity of Spotted Bull Recovery Resource Center to conduct third-party billing and generate continuous revenue to fund operations; support the upgrade of current substance use disorder infrastructure to meet in-patient treatment standards; and prioritize and implement integrated behavioral health principles and programming to ensure a strong inpatient and outpatient continuum of care. This will provide a continuity of care for patients and ensure that those with medical and mental illnesses complicating a methamphetamine addiction are able to receive comprehensive, effective treatment. Once up and running the facility will have the capacity to treat patients from northeastern Montana and potentially from other tribes.
