Applying a Cultural Models Approach to American Indian Substance Dependency Research.
Watts, Linda K.
American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research, v10 n1 p34-50 2001
American Indian "cultural models" of substance dependency and recovery were developed based on discourse analysis during ethnographic studies at an Indian rehabilitation clinic and with New Mexico Pueblo youth. Incorporating such social constructions of everyday life into the design and implementation of prevention and intervention programs may support local cultural revitalization while increasing program relevance and effectiveness.
