On Tuesday, the Governor of Arizona announced that the state would take action against fake rehab centers that have been targeting Indigenous communities throughout the Rocky Mountain West, including the Navajo Nation and the Ute Mountain Ute tribe in Colorado. In addition to defrauding the state out of millions in Medicaid payments, the centers have been coming onto tribal land and luring vulnerable people — sometimes with drugs and alcohol — to these centers where they often didn't get treatment and were subsequently stranded far from home. Yesterday, during a press conference, Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes said she believes the state of Arizona owes its tribal nations an apology. Rocky Mountain Community Radio's Maeve Conran spoke with Crystal Ashike of KSUT Tribal Radio and Chris Clements of KSJD who have been reporting on the issue.
