Abstract (Summary)

The purpose for this project was to develop a grant proposal to enhance alcohol treatment services for the Hispanic male population in the County of Los Angeles, California. The harm reduction model was utilized as it embraces interventions that aid in mitigating negative alcohol-related problems. This grant proposal identified the age group of 18-29 year olds as the target group for these services. Prevalence rates of alcohol used disorders in the Hispanic male population were noted as well as the continued, persistent growth of this target population in California. Through participation in treatment that provides Motivational Enhancement Therapy and Behavioral Self-Control Training, the clients will benefit from fostering intrinsic motivation that will help deter unwanted alcohol-related harmful behaviors. This strength-based treatment program will include culturally sensitive individual and group therapy as well as case management to aid in the process of prevention, intervention and maintenance of alcoho1 use disorders in the Hispanic male population. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
