The Mescalero Prevention Program, since 2006 has reduced 30-day alcohol use among underage youth (population on reservation is 3,889) from 53.6% to 13.4%. We have successfully used the Strategic Prevention Framework to implement evidence-based prevention strategies. We will implement all required SPF-PFS activities through a coordinated prevention scope of work that includes model programs such as Lead and Seed and our own traditional Apache culture and lifeways curriculum, including information about the efforts of historical trauma and alcohol use. All strategies will be employed at universal, selected, and indicated tiers in Mescalero by staff, youth and service provider coalitions all work will evaluated. Using needs assessment, capacity, and evaluation data to plan, the Mescalero Prevention Program developed objectives to prevent underage drinking for the on-reservation population of 3,889 people ( the target population is 1,021 youth aged 9-20 years) Youth, parents, other community members and Tribal leaders will be the focus of universal and selected strategies to prevent the onset and use of alcohol and other drugs. Approximately 92% of children liv in household that are below the poverty level and 27% of children are classified as abused or in need of intervention. Over the five years of the project the entire population of Mescalero will continue to be served. We will work to meet the goal of : Decrease the rate of underage drinking in Mescalero among our youth by increasing their knowledge and involvement in their traditional Apache customs and life ways. The measurable objective will be addressed to meet this goal. Strategies described by these objectives include: 1) identifying training and capacity development needs ; 2: supporting, recruiting, and training youth and adult coalition members; 3) developing staff and community capacity to employ prevention methods and science; 4) collecting survey data to track changed in community members' attitudes and behavior; 5) develop resiliency and decreasing risk factors among youth ages 9-20 years by involving them in traditional lifeways and events: 6) providing leadership training and parent education with evidence based models Strategies will be implemented by Prevention staff and will include a Youth coalition, Tribal Leadership, Elders, parents, and service providers. All measurable objectives will be evaluated and the performance measures required for the SPF-PFS will be reported using the required federal database. Data will be used to improve the program and design effective strategies. The Mescalero Prevention Program Team know prevention science and are invested in reducing alcohol use among youth and improving their health, wellness and futures.
