Anpetu Luta Otipi is the lead tribal substance abuse program for the Oglala Sioux Tribe on Pine Ridge Reservation. Our services are comprehensive, spanning the entire continuum, including prevention, treatment, and recovery support, and reaching youth, adolescents, and adults. To ensure the best possible impact, Anpetu Luta Otipi’s relies on the data, research, and science of effective prevention and treatment in order to eliminate alcohol, commercial tobacco, and other drug abuse on the Pine Ridge Reservation. All of our services are also deeply rooted in the culture and incorporate traditional health concepts. For more information about our mission and approach, please read our Mission & Philosophy page.
As the lead tribal addiction treatment organization, Anpetu Luta Otipi works in collaboration with federal, state, nonprofit, and other intra-tribal partners to increase the Oglala Sioux Tribe’s ability to effectively reduce the health, economic, and social burden attributed to the abuse of alcohol, commercial tobacco, and other drugs. If you would like to partner with ALO for your community-based prevention efforts, see our page about becoming a prevention partner.
Anpetu Luta Otipi offers a variety of data driven programs and services that have been specifically tailored to meet the needs of Oglala Sioux Tribal members. Through the planning, implementation, and evaluation of high quality programs and services Anpetu Luta Otipi focuses on achieving three measurable long-term outcomes:
- Increasing the average age of alcohol, commercial tobacco, and drug use initiation;
- Reducing binge drinking behavior; and
- Reducing past 30-day, 12 month, and lifetime prevalence of substance use.
All program activities and services are guided by these three outcome objectives and long-term progress within these priorities are carefully assessed at the population level as well as among those clients seeking services. Learn more about how we work towards these outcomes on our Goals & Objectives page.
