The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify a funding source, and write a grant to fund a methamphetamine treatment program for adolescents. An extensive review of the literature was performed to identify the unique needs of Latino families, specifically Latino males. The literature documents the need for substance use treatment that caters to the unique cultural experiences Latino adolescents face.
A search was carried out to identify a funder for a substance use treatment program for Latino adolescent males and their parents in Long Beach, California. SAMHSA was chosen as the best match for the proposed program.
The goal of this program is to prevent and reduce methamphetamine use among Latino adolescent males and strengthen familial ties through educating the adolescents and parents about methamphetamine and factors that influence addiction.
The actual submission of the proposal was not a requirement for this thesis project.
