TITLE: Evaluation of IHS Supported Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment Program for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Women

ABSTRACT: This study assesses the Indian Health Service's (IHS) substance abuse and treatment program. It seeks to improve program effectiveness by monitoring behaviors that enhance risk. The study is of critical importance to the IHS because research on alcohol and other drug abuse and related disease among American Indian/Alaska Native women is virtually nonexistent. Information on the effectiveness of treatment among this population is also limited.
