The FY 2006 Indian Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program allows American Indian and Alaska Native communities to plan and implement activities that will reduce and control crime associated with the distribution and use of alcohol and controlled substances in tribal communities. Through this program, the recipient will develop new or enhance existing strategies that prevent, interdict, and treat alcohol and drug use by tribal members. Awards will used to develop a project activity team; identify, apprehend, and prosecute those who illegally transport, distribute, and use alcohol and controlled substances; prevent and reduce the number of alcohol and substance-abuse-related crimes, traffic fatalities, and injuries; develop and enhance collaborations with federal, state, tribal, and local criminal justice agencies; integrate tribal and non-tribal services for offenders and their families; and make available culturally appropriate treatment and other services.

The Lummi Nation will use grant funds to implement a Community Mobilization Against Drug (CMAD) Abuse Initiative designed to respond to the reservation needs. CMAD will develop a detoxification center to address the needs of youth and adults; a transitional living center to support housing and employment for adults completing treatment or returning from a period of incarceration; youth leadership academy for individuals living with parents suffering from alcohol and substance abuse; and a comprehensive case management system to support the development of a computer-based system that will integrates all health, social, legal, employment, housing and substance abuse services focusing on the needs of tribal members.
