The Oglala Sioux Tribe Flowering Tree Program (FTP) provides culturally appropriate substance abuse treatment services to Native women and their children in the Aberdeen Area (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa). FTP utilizes a traditional Native approach to substance abuse treatment, incorporating applicable mainstream Western treatment approaches to offer holistic, long-term, residential and after-care treatment services for Native substance-abusing women and their children. FTP aims to 1) promote the physical, mental, emotional, cognitive and social development of Native American children of substance abusing parents; 2) improve services offered to children and their mothers; 3) improve family functioning and 4) decrease the incidence and prevalence of drug and alcohol abuse among Native women. FTP will conduct process, perceptual and impact evaluation procedures to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the project. The grantee plans to utilize pre and post-testing, various existing instruments, comparison groups, and numerous levels of statistical analysis in their evaluation procedures. NCA/NCF
