ASAP Education & Prevention Program
The Alternative Sentencing and Prevention Program (ASAP) has been designed to provide early education and intervention services in an attempt to reduce legal, health and/or impairment problems associated with the use of alcohol and/or drugs. We offer a “dual” level program (Level I and Level that utilizes 12 hours of the PRIME For Life (PRI) Risk Reduction educational curriculum. While the Level I Program is only the PRI educational component, the Level II Program also includes an intake interview prior to the class and an assessment evaluation at the conclusion of the classroom experience. The level of programming requirement is determined by the referral source. It is based upon what they determine as most beneficial to the client’s needs. Upon successful completion of the required programming, a Course Completion Report will be forwarded to the referral source along with, if applicable, recommendations for additional treatment.
The PRIME For Life Program has been selected by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for inclusion in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
