Management and Organizational Capacity Budget Appendices Needs Assessment Problem to be Addressed. After the destruction and murder of the bombing of the World Trade Center and the Madrid Train Station attacks our national focus was on the possibility of horrendous terrorist crimes. Yet as our national focus shifts to the war on terrorism it is easy to forget about the threats that residents of small rural counties and Indian Reservations face every day in every part of the United States. The crisis faced by some of our rural areas form just as dire threat as 11. Rural areas are sometimes romanticized as idyllic life yet the substance abuse patterns for Sheraton County paint different picture. Violent crime and substance abuse treatment for youth are often at much higher percentages than either state or national averages. This epidemic is stealing away our leaders of tomorrow precious resource which we can no longer afford to lose.
Number and types of incidents of juvenile delinquency in the geographic area to be served. The majority of crimes committed on the Lenape reservation by youth are for breaking liquor laws or possession of marijuana and other drugs. Yet this is only the tip of the iceberg. While these are the youth currently being prosecuted there are also cases of truant youth which are tracked by the Tribe's education department as well as an additional youth who are undergoing treatment. Constituency Age range targeted by proposed project. This project targets youth ages 17. We chose wide age range because as the tribal community is rather small the ability to make significant impact on community substance abuse is much greater by including younger children. The importance of starting young with substance abuse mental health intervention cannot be emphasized enough. One critical age for substance abuse intervention is sixth grade. Only 4.5% of second graders in Shelton Middle School report using alcohol in the last month. By eighth grade that number has jumped to 46.9% 22.3% state. And by tenth grade the number has increased to 63.7% versus 12% state. Number of juveniles to be served by proposed project. Forty five court involved and truant youth will be served in this project. American Indian youth both male and female found in isolated rural areas and are often below the federal poverty line. These youth are mandated by either tribal or county court to treatment and intervention services. The tribal youth population between ages and is roughly youth. This project will serve almost percent of tribal youth. Description of the geographic area to be served. The geographic boundary for this program is Sheraton County WA. Goals and Objectives Goal.

The program lasts from four to nine months. Specific treatment objectives must be completed in each phase in order to advance to the next phase.
Phase I. Orientation and Intake Assessment Detoxification and Stabilization Length. One to three months. in this phase the counselor will perform risk assessment and if necessary refer the youth to mental health counselor for either full or partial psychological assessment. Upon evaluating assessment data the Initial Treatment Plan is developed that includes measurable goals for the youth to complete by the end of the program. 1. Develop Initial Treatment Plan with individual goals and objectives that will include at least of the following. Substance Abuse Education per week hour week curriculum coordinated with Mason County Drug Court Dialectical Behavior Therapy. gender specific groups per week 1.5 hours OR Seven Challenges Program. gender specific groups per week 1.5 hours.

Phase II Intensive Counseling Therapy and Treatment Services. During Phase II the emphasis and focus of program services change.

Evaluation Short surveys will be given to all participants at the end of each session in which they will be asked to grade their counselors the materials uses the mentoring sessions and other activities associated with the project. Participants will be asked to look at information about themselves and other similar programs so that they can be able to assess the program from many aspects. Assessing the process of program implementation produces information that helps shape the program. Checking the implementation process is one important aspects of formative evaluation; without it we might never know if the designed program is indeed being delivered. Project coordinator does intake and facilitates mental health assessment for each youth.

This activity fosters responsibility and models positive behavior. Performance Requirements Youth arrive at the counseling sessions on time 98% of the time.

Often referred to as step program lifelong process that helps an individual to face reality of no control over own addiction. Youth enter the program after referral from the police department at Sheraton County or Lenape Tribe. The program becomes involved with youth before they are actually tried at court. Youth may also come to treatment services through the public school system the court system or self referral. From that point their treatment need is assessed. If the youth needs treatment beyond the scope of outpatient treatment than the client is referred to the closest culturally competent youth residential. Many of these youth come from an environment of use in which parent or guardian regularly abuses substances. Others have gone through foster parenting suffer from posttraumatic stress syndrome have been sexually or physically abused or have been involved with child protection services.
