Abstract
Presentation of the research findings of a 2015 report linking culturally specific programing and practices to research and theory, created by University of Minnesota’s Program in Health Disparities Research researchers and made possible through funding by the office for Business and Community Economic Development, Community Health Initiative (CHI). This report is a product of the research partnership between Turning Point, Inc., the University of Minnesota Program in Health Disparities Research, and the Office for Business and Community Economic Development. Funding was provided by Medical and the Community Health Initiative. The report serves to link existing culturally specific practices to published literature, widely studied theories and models, and specific cultural values. Founded in 1976, Turning Point is a multi-service non-profit organization whose programs have earned local and national recognition for being among the first to advance a culturally-specific treatment model. Turning Point’s recovery-oriented system of care provides culturally specific and individually tailored approach to service delivery. Today’s social environment, and the challenges African Americans face, warrant use and revitalization of cultural strengths. Problems such as drug and alcohol addiction, HIV/AIDS, health disparities, high rates of incarceration, unemployment, and poverty are severe and complex. In order to provide effective services, providers must understand the importance and delivery of culturally specific services and care.
