Considerations for Culturally Centering Evidence-Based Treatments among American Indian and Alaska Native Communities
October 15, 2021
Research on cultural adaptations of substance use disorder interventions among racially and
ethnically diverse adults is both increasing and promising. In this webinar, Dr. Kait Hirchak will
highlight two case studies to describe re-centering evidence-based treatments for substance use
disorder in partnership with American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. She will
also discuss the importance and process of community-based participatory research, and the
need for additional effectiveness studies as well as dissemination and implementation efforts to
improve treatment outcomes for AI/AN adults participating in culturally adapted interventions.
