Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2003, $198,000)

The Methamphetamine Treatment Project is collaborative effort between community and state to address the growing incidence of Methamphetamine use and abuse among youth in the state of South Dakota. The project is comprised of four phases, (1) stabilization, (2) intensive treatment, (3) structured living, and (4) community placement. Each phase will build on the proceeding phase. Most treatment programs do not adequately address the special needs of the Methamphetamine dependent adolescent client. The long detoxification process, the extended withdrawal period, and additional medical concerns all add to the needs of these clients. This proposed program would address the special needs of these clients and work to assure a strong recovery.
