Collaborative Tribal Partnerships for Wellness

Approach

Partnerships for Change

Over 115 people die every day from the opioid epidemic. Communities can’t solve the greatest health crisis of our time alone. The challenge is even more difficult for tribal communities, who often face barriers to care as part of daily life. As a health care ally for tribes, we offer a collaborative approach to healing.

Health Care Resources

Harm Reduction

Wellness Opportunities

A Strategy of Empowerment

Our mission is based on empowering tribes through health care resources and wellness opportunities. Because of our expertise in harm reduction and health care management, we know that smart, compassionate care can kickstart big-picture change for tribal communities.

Crisis

Stopping—and Starting—the Cycle

Our country is facing a fight that we haven’t been able to win. And tribal communities have been hit hard. Our neighborhoods and families are the victims of this crisis–but they are also our secret weapon. Their determination makes a better future possible. We can only fix this together.

We all know that addiction is a cycle. And it’s one we have to break. Science-based medical intervention is one part of that process, and it’s a vital component of our collaborative solution. But it’s not a magic wand.

That is why “Starting the Cycle” is crucial. Like addiction, health is part of a cycle too. We need strong families, behavioral care, outreach programs, and wellness opportunities to create healthy communities. Our work is rooted in that understanding.

Greg Greenberg

Chief Medical Officer

Greg Greenberg obtained an undergraduate degree in neuroscience and psychology at UCLA after growing up in Southern California. He then moved to Columbus, Ohio to get his MD at Ohio State and remained in Columbus for his family medicine residency. After completing his training, Dr. Greenberg moved to Northern California to work at community health center in Redding with a desire to serve an underserved population. During that time he also worked as an emergency physician and hospitalist. When he was asked to start up a new clinic with the Redding Rancheria, Dr. Greenberg used that opportunity to create addiction medicine services after over a decade of treating patients who battled addiction and often had little services available to them. He then worked with the local hospitals to provide access to treatment for people who were hospitalized with concomitant addiction issues. He continues to work as a hospitalist in Redding while focusing on educating the community as well as health care providers and continues on the mission to expand access to services for people with substance use disorder.
