Additional Info about NAC Integrated Health Services
Native American Connections' mission is to improve the lives of Native American population through health, housing and community development services. With the mission to serve Native people, more than 50% of NAC's behavioral health services and resources are provided to the Native American community. Indigenous People of the Americas have a rich heritage of inherited knowledge passed on by ancestral languages since time immemorial through oral archivists and oral language. This knowledge has been passed on through a wide range of ceremonies, stories, dances, theatrics and instruction. Everything from social and kinship rules to when and how to plant and harvest were passed from generation to generation through our ancient languages. Native languages were not written until after colonization and still remain spoken languages today. Tribal languages were significantly impacted by colonization and the placement of Native children into boarding schools for over 100 years where they were required to speak English and punished for speaking their tribal language. With history in mind, NAC does not translate documents into written language, and receives few requests for oral language interpreting. NAC does identify employees who speak languages other than English and utilizes health plan interpretation vendors and Native community interpreters as needed.
NAC has Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) and Mental Health Block Grant (MHBG) funds that can be used to fund substance use treatment services for people who live in Maricopa County. This funding may also be used when substance use treatment services are not covered by a person's private insurance plan.
NAC accepts Medicaid / AHCCCS.
