Meth Free Crowalition


The Apsaalooke Nation Housing Authority's (ANHA) Meth Free Crowalition (MFC) was designed as a community prevention program for the purposes of providing alternative activities, particularly aimed at youth in the seven reservation community districts.

"The APIP utilizes the Apsaalooke way of life to design a Apsaalooke PIP curriculum utilizing a similar model as NICWA, however applying Apsaalooke Culture, Values and Beliefs in the 8 training sessions.
The Apsaalooke PIP developed a program that instructs parents in the culture and history of the Apsaalooke Nation along with the Apsaalooke Parenting Techniques pasted down from generation.

"Designed to provide a brief, practical culturally specific training program for Apsaalooke parents to explore the values and attitudes expressed in traditional Indian child‐treating practices and then to apply those values to modern skills in parenting."

The Meth Free Crowalition was a Regional Partnership Grantee (RPG) of SAMHSA’s National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (2007-2012). The final report indicated the following performance indicators:


Those identifying safety as a problem (serious, moderate, or mild) decreased from almost 31% at the baseline to approximately 19% at conclusion. This reflects a growth in a perception of public safety over time. However, the overall environment score increased from 9.2% to 12.8% identifying it as a problem.


This trend continues throughout the overall domain scores where the problems have actually increased over time, at least as perceived by the participants. However, due to all of the issues with the data and its collection, the validity of and consistency of the data cannot be verified.
