Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program (ASAP)

The Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, Alcohol and Substance Abuse Program, provides outreach services, assessment, referral, and adult/adolescent Level III and Level IV outpatient treatment for YDSP Tribal community members and their families.  In addition, ASAP collaborates and contracts with other facilities to make available acute care services, residential treatment care and halfway house placement for adults and adolescents.

In an ongoing effort to meet the psychological, drug and alcohol challenge of the Pueblo, YDSP has enhanced the management and delivery of behavioral health services.  The Department’s focus is holistic and culturally relevant concentrating on community strength, family support, culture and traditions intersecting with professional alcohol and substance abuse and mental practices.   Community-wide healing and wellness are critical to the Pueblo’s sustainability and community growth.

Services Include:

Prevention Services:  ASAP utilizes the Positive Action (PA) curriculum developed by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP).  PA is an evidence-based program focused on character development and academic improvement, which has shown strong evidence of positive effect in prevention and intervention strategies for Native American youth, ages 6-12. When used in an intervention setting, such as counseling, it promotes an intrinsic interest in becoming a better person by encouraging a positive self-concept, educational advancement and responsible citizenship. The overall goals of PA are to:

  • Reduce problem behaviors such as substance use, violence, suspensions, disruptive behaviors, dropping out and sexual risk behavior.
  • Improve school attendance and academic performance.
  • Improve parent-child bonding and family cohesion, while reducing family conflict.

 Youth Treatment Services:  A supportive outpatient program based on adolescent community reinforcement theory. Treatment include Group Therapy, Individual Therapy and Family Therapy, for adolescents 13 to 17 years of age, living in a YDSP Tribal community family unit. 

Adult Treatment Services:  A supportive outpatient program serving YDSP Tribal member adults, 18 years of age and older.  Services are provided during conventional hours of operation with extended hours to support adult needs.

Services for Co-Occurring Disorders:  Age appropriate services are made available to Tribal community members with co-occurring psychiatric and substance abuse disorders.  Culturally, linguistically, and developmentally appropriate services are provided by a certified, licensed counselor or team trained in integrated dual diagnosis treatment.

Collaborations: Memorandums of Agreement are in place with State and local officials for delivery of services into new schools and communities, and to bring about positive change.  ASAP promotes and is involved in community events and education projects that create awareness of prevention initiatives that target addiction, violence and other related family issues.
