Paiute Tribe finds success with substance abuse program
The Paiute Tribe of Utah says its Prime for Life drug and alcohol education program has been a success.

The tribe began offering the program two years ago. Everyone who has participated has successfully completed it.

"I've talked to many other social workers and instructors who use the program, and many have said it is the only one that takes away the denial factor," instructor James Plonowski told The St. George Spectrum. "There is accountability, and that is empowering.

Participants are usually ordered by a court to take the program but it's open to everyone, including non-tribal members.
