As a coalition, ASAP conducts evidence-based and data driven environmental strategies to help create sustainable drug use behavior change at the community level. Although ASAP as a whole focuses on policy adoption, changing consequences, social norming, enhancing or restricting access, and altering physical design, a few of ASAP’s provider members implement evidence based curriculum and other such services to prevent drug abuse within the community. We happily promote these partners to all community members seeking their services. Their information can be found on our Resource page.
As a result of the hard work of regular volunteer members, ASAP has achieved great success. In addition to implementing social marketing and prevention media campaigns, the coalition has implemented a local ordinance restricting the sale of synthetic marijuana, had a moratorium on pill mills, and obtained the recognition of the state attorney general on successful substance exposed newborn program initiatives.
