  Annotation: This report presents the results of the federally supported participatory evaluation of the Community Mobilized Against Drugs (CMAD) program implemented by the Lummi Nation (LN) in Washington State.
Abstract: Findings from the study and their potential implications include: (1) the Community Mobilized Against Drugs (CMAD) initiative implemented many of the components defined in its Indian Alcohol and Substance Abuse Demonstration (IASAD) proposal, made a significant impact on the consciousness of community members on alcohol and drug-related crimes, and alerted many tribal communities to a new broad, holistic method for tackling these problems; (2) the CMAD initiative has not been able to develop formal external Memorandums of Understandings (MOUs) with other Coast Salish tribes and law enforcement agencies; (3) CMAD is a culturally appropriate method drawing in key departments and programs to address substance abuse problems; and (4) the work CMAD has begun, whether it remains in its present form or takes on a new configuration, certainly merits continuation. In 2006, the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice awarded a contract to the Native American Research and Training Center (NARTC) at the University of Arizona to conduct a participatory evaluation of the CMAD program implemented by the Lummi Nation (LN) in Washington State. This report addresses the results of the evaluation conducted in partnership with the LN. The goals of the evaluation were to determine if (1) the LN-IASAD project successfully achieved its stated program goals, and whether (2) the outcomes of the demonstration project had application for other tribal communities.
