The Tribal Responses Initiative is designed to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with drug overdoses among individuals who encounter law enforcement or are involved in the criminal justice system in tribal communities.
This initiative, co-funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, supports the implementation of the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) in four tribal communities. The project will strengthen the ability of the selected tribes to assess information gathered from public safety, public health, and behavioral health responses. This initiative also strives to enhance the ability of the selected tribes to implement tailored prevention and intervention activities to reduce overdose deaths and facilitate access to treatment and recovery services to survivors of nonfatal overdoses.
Reducing overdose deaths in tribal communities by implementing the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program; Strengthening public safety, public health, and behavioral health partnerships; and enhancing their capacity to implement intervention strategies.
