Project Term: 24 months; Ended 2019
Grant Amount: $75,000
The Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch expanded their substance use programming – including prevention and treatment – for young people in Yellowstone County. While they tried to expand services into counties outside of Yellowstone, their efforts were not successful. They did, however, complete the state certification process to provide substance use disorder services, secured contracts with three high schools and six middle schools, and engaged multiple counties outside of Yellowstone. They also integrated substance use treatment into residential and community-based treatment and implemented substance use prevention programming.
