Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $1,000,000)

The Bad River Band of Lake Superior Tribe of Chippewa Indians is applying to the FY22 Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Site-based Program (COSSAP) for $1,000,000 to develop and implement Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) in response to the overdose crisis and impacts of illicit opioids, stimulants, or other substances on the Bad River Indian Reservation. This application is for Subcategory 1c: Local and Tribal Applicants. The project will use 100% of the grant award to address the following area: Evidence-based substance use disorder treatment related to opioids, stimulants, and other illicit drugs, such as MAT, as well as harm reduction activities and recovery support services.

Primary activities of this grant will support grant objectives to: 1.) Hire three new staff members (MSW Case Manager, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, and Peer Specialist) to assist with development and implementation of CCS in Bad River, as well as provide treatment; 2.) Create a CCS Advisory Team that will serve as a permanent, multidisciplinary body that will increase cooperation and collaboration to address the issues that arise due to the impacts of illicit opioids, stimulants, and other drugs; 3.) Create a CCS Team made up of professionals and service providers who will support treatment and recovery related to opioid stimulant, and other substance abuse in a number of different ways; 4.) Develop a CCS Plan as a living, guiding document for CCS in Bad River; and 4.) Implement CCS in Bad River. The intended outcomes for this project are to enroll 100% of people seeking AODA services through CCS, and to provide greater access and opportunity for treatment and recovery support services to our tribal population located on the Bad River Indian Reservation in Ashland County, Wisconsin.
