The Penobscot Nation Health Department (PNHD) is requesting $173,330 in funding from the Indian Health Services (IHS) Fiscal Year 2021 Community Opioid Intervention Pilot Project (COIPP). If awarded, IHS will approve up to $500,000 per year for a three-year project period. This funding request will facilitate the PNHD?s efforts to develop and expand community awareness and education about culturally-appropriate and family-centered opioid prevention, treatment and recovery activities. The Penobscot Nation Health Department is a tribally operated Title V Compact facility funded, in part, by Indian Health Services. The only tribal Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in the state of Maine, PNHD has provided Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) for the treatment of opioid dependence for over a decade. PNHD?s plan targets culturally appropriate community awareness and education through: a comprehensive marketing plan to raise awareness of existing opioid-specific services; the implementation of a consistent, culturally-based island school program for students in grades 1-8; a safety campaign to provide medication lock boxes to all households on the reservation as well as a comprehensive ?take-back? program that will include the health center, pharmacy and police department; youth, family and MAT program participant engagement activities that will promote a connection to the earth, tribal traditions and a healthy lifestyle. PNHD?s plan will expand MAT services through: provider continuing education; distribution and education on the use of naloxone; and TeleMAT services. The plan will also strengthen the existing support system for recovery by increasing community partnerships.The addition of a Project Coordinator position will allow for the planning, tracking and facilitation of all activities within PNHD?s plan and will ensure program sustainability after the grant period.
