Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $250,000)

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 Coeur d'Alene Tribe will use the grant funds to hire a juvenile probation officer and clerk coordinator to oversee the Healing to Wellness Court. This court is designed to reduce the recidivism of juveniles who have repeat arrests, by providing a structured and organized program for a continued sober and stable lifestyle. Program participants will engage in treatment and aftercare services.
