Tribal Response to the Opioid Epidemic in California: A Community Report


USC was tasked with evaluating the efforts of five Tribal medication assisted treatment (MAT) programs in California. These five programs, which serve American Indian and Alaska Natives (AIAN), are using Tribal MAT funding to increase accessibility and use of MAT services with the larger goal of reducing opioid overdose deaths.

The scope of work for each program is unique based on what type of services each program could offer. This report outlines the progress of these five programs.
