Expanding CRAFT in New Mexico will fund four pilot projects, one in each quadrant of the state of New Mexico, with one specifically serving a Native American community. Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) takes a skills-based approach that empowers families to effectively influence the behavior of a person struggling with substance abuse and other addictions. In clinical trials, it has demonstrated efficacy in engaging individuals in treatment, reducing use, and increasing compliance with pharmacotherapy. CRAFT is appropriate for the outcomes to be achieved for this initiative because it is an evidence based psychosocial intervention and is part of the comprehensive MAT model approach to treatment of substance use disorders. It has been developed and tested with NM populations, and therefore appropriate for the target population. The goals of Expanding CRAFT in NM are to: (1) Develop the capacity to offer CRAFT services statewide in person and through Telehealth to meet the immediate need of families dealing with addiction and to guide persons involved with substances towards treatment services; (2) Develop CRAFT practitioners and a New Mexico cadre of CRAFT supervisors in an effort towards dissemination of model; (3) Create the policy and infrastructure necessary to make CRAFT a payable service for service providers around the state, thereby incentivizing its use and creating sustainability; and (4) Evaluate the effectiveness of the CRAFT program. Expanding CRAFT in New Mexico will serve 120 families while developing a cadre of CRAFT practitioners and trainers in New Mexico.

City: ALBUQUERQUE
State: NM
Grant Award Number: 1 H79 FG000817-01
Congressional District: 1
FY 2022 Funding: $1,500,000
Project Period: 2022/09/30 - 2023/09/29

The purpose of the Peer Support Model to Address Substance Use Disorders Treatment Engagement in Rural Communities project is to develop, implement and test a model of tele-substance use disorder (TH-SUD) treatment and patient engagement to reach underserved rural Hispanic and Native American (NA) populations in Sandoval, San Juan, McKinley, Cibola, Valencia, and Santa Fe Counties, within New Mexico (NM). The overall goal is to reduce the consequences of substance use in culturally relevant ways. Our population of focus is rural, Hispanic and NA adult patients (form the counties listed above) with a SUD who present to the emergency department (ED) or medical inpatient units of the University of New Mexico (UNM), Sandoval Regional Medical Center (SRMC), Inc., located in Sandoval County (SC). This one-year project includes six goals. The first goal is to partner with local communities, with a focus on rural, NA and Hispanic populations to: (i) raise awareness of substances, including their effects and treatment options; (ii) better understand barriers and facilitators to TH-SUD treatment; and (iii) identify processes to link individuals to behavioral health programs in their community after an ED or inpatient visit at SRMC. The second goal is to increase the capacity of SRMC to provide evidence-based, culturally informed, trauma focused TH-SUD treatment to adults from the target population that are admitted to the ED or medical inpatient units with a SUD. The third goal is to increase the capacity of SRMC to identify and link individuals who are admitted to the ED or medical inpatient units with a SUD to TH-SUD treatment. The fourth goal goal is to determine outcomes among individuals who are admitted to the ED or medical inpatient units at SRMC with a SUD and who engage in TH-SUD treatment. The fifth goal is to increase the availability of computers in the community so that individuals who want to engage in TH-SUD treatment, but experiencing connectivity issues, will be able to access treatment. Finally, the sixth goal is to (i) determine the preliminary costs associated with the TH-SUD treatment service and potential cost-savings; and (ii) develop a plan for sustainability of TH-SUD treatment services beyond federal funding, The TH-SUD treatment model will include the (i) identification of individuals who present to the ED or are admitted to the medical inpatient units with a SUD, (ii) linkage to TH-SUD treatment, and (iii) provision of TH-SUD treatment. The evidence-based culturally informed and trauma-focused TH-SUD treatment will include Seeking Safety (SS), Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and psychosocial supports, including connection to housing, food, and other benefits. Peer Support Workers (PSWs) will be responsible for engaging individuals into treatment and for providing treatment (except for MAT). The unduplicated number of individuals to be enrolled will be approximately 225; 126 from the ED and 99 from the medical inpatient units. In addition, 100 community members will be trained through informational community-based presentations and nine providers (one clinician and eight PSWs) will be trained in SS and MI.

The SAMHSA Native Connections "Intergenerational Intertribal (12) Positive Directions for Native Health" is a five-year grant that will help American Indian communities identify and address the behavioral health needs of Native youth. The overall program goal is to prevent and reduce suicidal behavior and substance misuse and promote mental health among Native youth up to age 24. AAIHB will partner with tribal communities to: 1) Reduce substance use and suicide ideation by increasing positive cultural identity in trauma survivors through a culturally adapted curriculum. By strengthening Native American youth's connection to their cultural identity, we will honor who they are and also contribute to a decrease in substance use and poor mental health outcomes. 2) Provide mental health promotion, trauma-informed care approaches, suicide prevention, and substance misuse awareness. A comprehensive approach to improve the well-being of the community involves creating community-wide awareness to fight stigma, provide support and educate the public about mental health, suicide, and substance misuse. 3) Increase community engagement and capacity to address suicide and substance misuse in the community. The project team will partner with the Intergenerational Community Advisory Panel (ICAP) and the Albuquerque Area Southwest Tribal Epidemiology Center (AASTEC) Executive Council/Community Scientific Advisory Council (EC/CSAC) composed of community members, elders, youth, and health and social service personnel to guide the project. Most importantly, the ICAP/EC/CSAC will make decisions that inform the cultural adaption of the "Culture and Drugs Don't Mix" Curriculum.

Advancing Care in Southern New Mexico through CCBHC Implementation will create a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) to serve individuals and families of all ages within Doña Ana County (County), an estimated 500 unduplicated individuals, by providing comprehensive, coordinated care. The person- and family-centered integrated services will prioritize individuals in crisis, those experiencing a lack of access to behavioral healthcare services, and need support with substance use-related resources. It is estimated the program will serve 50 individuals in year 1; 100 in year 2; 150 in year 3; and 200 in year 4. The County, with nearly 220,000 residents and a 5% growth rate, is the second largest county in the state by population and abuts 64 miles of border with Mexico. More than 61% of County residents are Hispanic, most of Mexican-American descent, with over 50% of residents speaking a language other than English at home. Half of County residents live in the urbanized city of Las Cruces, while the remaining residents live in the more than 20 small towns and villages that are disconnected from the urban center. A total of 90,000 residents live in the County's 37 colonias (unincorporated communities of extreme poverty) dotting the border, with one in four living in poverty in the 4,000 square miles of wild brush and isolated rural areas. County residents are vulnerable to unemployment rates as high as 8%, housing and job losses, mental health challenges, and a 40% increase of crimes between 2021 to 2022 (in the urban core of Las Cruces, New Mexico). The County ranks 12th out of 33 New Mexico counties reporting sadness or hopelessness, 36.1% respectively, nearly twice the national average (CDC, 2020). Overall, nearly 20,000 or 9% of the population lives with a substance use issue in the County, yet only 4,500 are actively seeking treatment (New Mexico Substance Use Disorder Treatment Gap Analysis, January 2020). Local data show that over 1/3 of residents need mental health services and 30% residing within colonias also identify a need for mental health support (Center for Community Analysis at New Mexico State University, Sept. 2020). The CCBHC will successfully implement and achieve the following goals and objectives. Goal #1: Increase the capacity of the local mental health crisis response to reduce the risk of high-risk behaviors that may contribute to attempted suicides, unnecessary criminalization of youth and adults, or death. This will be done through completion of objectives 1a - 1d. Goal #2: Establish the first certified community behavioral health center (CCBHC) in New Mexico to improve the behavioral health of residents, completing objectives 2a - 2h. Goal #3: Increase the level of behavioral health equity in decisions-making activities associated with the CCBHC by completing objectives 3a and 3b.
