Qungasvik Toolbox: An Indigenous Intervention Science Model for Alaska Native Communities

This toolbox is a multilevel strength-based intervention developed by Yup’ik communities to reduce and prevent alcohol misuse disorder and suicide in 12-18 year old Yup’ik Alaska Native youth. It focuses on culturally meaningful “reasons for sobriety” and “reasons for life.” An operations manual describes the community-level cultural implementation process along with specific prevention activities that the communities choose from and adapt to their local cultural context.
