The Round Valley Indian Tribes will create a prevention program that addresses underage drinking and root causes of Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) abuse. The proposed program - Path to Wellness (PTW) will seek to address historical trauma by promoting protective factors (cultural strengths) and reducing risk factors. The RVIT has made a commitment to create a Tribal Action Plan as decreed by the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010. The Path to Wellness Project will serve members of the Round Valley Indian Tribes and will utilize prevention strategies that are culturally centered promote the development of tribal infrastructure to address historical trauma experienced by the tribes of Round Valley. The program has 4 main goals: Develop a Tribal Action Plan for Prevention, Decrease Truancy for youth, Implement Youth Wellness Assessment Screening Tool, Identify and Utilize Evidence Based Prevention/Intervention Strategies for youth. Each goal has several objectives intended to carry out prevention strategies that will create positive change and long lasting effects on the "norms" that exist in the community related to underage drinking. This project is comprehensive in that it promotes community wellness and addresses issues that have effected this community since the contact period in the mid-1850s. The project will utilize the Community Readiness Model to assist with our program development efforts. The Community Readiness Model will determine readiness levels to help us gauge the pace and starting point of the Tribal Action Plan. Each of our Program Goals will be guided by our readiness level in specific areas. The program seeks to provide historical and intergenerational trauma support systems that promote community connectedness to break the cycle of harmful lifestyles. The utilization of cultural and traditional protocols sustains environmental resources and promotes reliable infrastructure for healthy families and kinship. Our proposed prevention and recovery support programming is intended to be led by community needs, community mobilization and engagement.
