Project Term: 12 months; Ended 2017
Grant Amount: $50,000
The Fort Peck Tribes will develop a business plan to guide the establishment of a new inpatient chemical dependency treatment center to compliment Spotted Bull Recovery Center’s current outpatient facility on the Fort Peck reservation. The business plan will include logistical details for the new center as well as plans for integration between the inpatient and outpatient facilities, third-party billing, integration with outpatient primary care and behavioral health, and coordination with other treatment facilities. The project will be carried out through a partnership among the Tribal Action Plan Committee, the tribal executive board, the tribal health department, tribal courts, and the law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction on the reservation. While the population of focus will be Native American patients from the Fort Peck region, the facility would also serve non-Native patients.
