Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment

Project Date: 2008
Project Lead: Angela Larson
Client: Tanana Chiefs Conference (TCC)

TCC was awarded more than $10 million over five years to provide substance abuse screening, brief treatment intervention, and referral for all patients accessing CAIHC and to better coordinate behavioral health and primary care services within TCC. The project expands the Tanana Chiefs Conference continuum of care to include screening, brief intervention, referral, and brief treatment within the Chief Andrew Isaac Health Center, a primary care medical facility in the city of Fairbanks, Alaska and within the TCC Community Health Aide Program (CHAP) serving 22 of the rural village communities included in the Tanana Chiefs Conference service area. In addition, the Tanana Chiefs SBIRT project enhances outpatient, pre-treatment, and assessment services within its continuum of care.
