Marijuana Use clinical trials at UC Health
1 research study open to new patients
open to eligible people ages 14-18
The investigators plan to develop and test a new alcohol and other drug (AOD) intervention for urban AI/AN youth, "Motivational Interviewing and Culture for Urban Native American Youth (MICUNAY)." This intervention integrates tradition-based activities and motivational interviewing (MI). The investigators will intervene at both the community and individual level. At the individual level, they will provide MICUNAY to adolescents. At the community level, they will provide discussion of AOD prevention at Community Wellness Gatherings (CWG). This work is important because they will gain an understanding of how well a tradition-based healing program that integrates MI works to prevent AOD use among urban AI/AN youth.
