The majority of substance abuse treatment facilities operated by a Tribal government (73 percent) or the Indian Health Service (63 percent) were located in rural areas, while the majority of privately operated or State/local/community government-operated facilities that served the American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) population were located in urban areas (62 percent). Substance abuse treatment facilities operated by a Tribal government were more likely to provide only outpatient services than facilities operated by the Indian Health Service or facilities serving the AI/AN populations that were operated by a private organization or a State/local/community government. Forty-three percent of AI/AN facilities offered treatment services in one or more AI/AN languages.
