Substance Use Prevention & Mental Health Promotion Programs Effective in Tribal Communities

We would like to acknowledge a challenge related to compiling a list of evidence-based prevention practices for tribal communities. Many prevention programs have been developed for use in tribal communities, and many offer a great deal of promise for meeting the needs of communities; however, until they have been evaluated it is uncertain whether these programs will have positive or negative impacts on communities. While the list provided in this report
includes programs with the highest level of available evidence, there are many other existing programs that have been developed and/or used in tribal communities with less evidence of effectiveness that we did not include on this list.
