Description: The purpose of the Youth Regional Treatment Center (YRTC) Aftercare Program is to address gaps in services that occur when youth transition from an YRTC treatment program and return home or to their designated caregiver. There may be limited, if any, aftercare support services available in a youth’s home community. Limited access to an aftercare support system significantly decreases the likelihood of successful recovery and increases the probability of relapse and other poor outcomes. In alignment with the Indian Health Service (IHS) 2019-2023 Strategic Plan Goal 1: To ensure that comprehensive, culturally appropriate personal and public health services are available and accessible to American Indian and Alaska Native people, the Tribal and Federal YRTC aftercare programs funded under this announcement will work closely with Tribal aftercare transition agencies to strengthen partnerships and develop a coordinated continuum of aftercare services. YRTCs will develop aftercare programs to support youth leaving residential treatment in order to promote recovery and wellness, and reduce relapse, recidivism and return to treatment. YRTCs will also address common challenges, such as juvenile delinquency, by partnering with diversion and juvenile justice programs. YRTCs will partner with Tribal and other agencies that provide transition support to identify gaps in services and create individualized aftercare support plans for youth promote a meaningful life in their home community.This is a forecast only. Applications will be available once the Notice of Funding Opportunity for this program is finalized and published in the Federal Register.
