Addiction & Overdose

Brady Garrett

Bloomberg Fellow

A tribal citizen of the Oklahoma Cherokee Nation, much of Brady’s career and academic work has focused on serving the tribe and ensuring that behavioral health services are provided in a culturally competent and respectful manner. Brady currently works as a psychologist at Cherokee Nation Behavioral Health (CNBH), providing outpatient counseling services and conducting research as an NIH postdoctoral fellow. He hopes to use the knowledge gained through the Bloomberg Fellowship to design and implement a comprehensive prevention and intervention program to reduce opioid addiction in the Cherokee Nation. He will help CNBH establish a research and evaluation department, allowing the clinic to use surveillance measures to better drive evidence-based program development. CNBH is the flagship clinic of the tribe and provides outpatient counseling services, including addiction related disorders and trauma-related disorders, among others.
