National Community Health Partners Supports Compass Behavioral Health Care's Annual Red Road to Wellbriety Celebration

Tucson, Arizona – September, 26th, 2012 – Promoting Wellness & Healthy Living Among all Native Americans in Pima County! National Community Health Partners was proud to be a part of ‘The Annual Red Road to Wellbriety Celebration' on Saturday, September 22nd, 2012. 

Retrieved from the Medical News Today website, (URL:http://www.medicalnewstoday/releases/119816.php), a report released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in 2008 found that 11.7 % of deaths among Native Americans and Alaska Natives between 2001 and 2005 were alcohol-related, compared with 3.3% for the United States as a whole.  

Albert Moreno, CEO, NCHP notes, "Alcohol and drug abuse touches every community, so we are please at the concerted efforts to ensure that our Native American brothers and sisters receive the education and treatment that is important to us all.   We applaud Compass Behavioral Health Care for its commitment and efforts to this cause."

NCHP's contribution to the occasion was the offering of free HIV testing. Information about the service can be found on NCHP's website, http://www.nchponline.org  or by calling 520-795-9756.
