The Great Plains Initiative has two primary aims. Aim 1 is to determine community-defined needs for identifying and addressing substance use issues in order to create a Great Plains American Indian substance use research agenda. Such issues may involve a broad range of topics, such as specific substance misuse, barriers to treatment, the role of historical trauma in substance use, mistrust of research, and others as determined through the Community-based participatory research process. Aim 2 is to explore the feasibility of promoting the use of telehealth platforms to promote access to and utilization of medication for opioid use disorder treatment in tribal communities in the Great Plains.
