Historically, American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) have experienced disparities in access to healthcare services, funding, resources, quality and quantity of services, treatment outcomes, and health education and prevention services, presenting major barriers to their recovery. This Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) assists behavioral health providers in providing culturally competent and responsive, engaging, holistic, trauma-informed services to AI/AN clients. The TIP provides program administrators and supervisors with tools and strategies that will help facilitate implementation of these practices.
