Center for Substance Abuse Prevention

The mission of the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention is to improve behavioral health through evidence-based prevention approaches.

The Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) works with federal, state, public, and private organizations to develop comprehensive prevention systems by:

  • Providing national leadership in the development of policies, programs, and services to prevent the onset of illegal drug use, prescription drug misuse and abuse, alcohol misuse and abuse, and underage alcohol and tobacco use
  • Promoting effective substance abuse prevention practices that enable states, communities, and other organizations to apply prevention knowledge effectively

As a result of its efforts, CSAP's work creates:

  • Supportive workplaces, schools, and communities
  • Drug-free and crime-free neighborhoods
  • Positive connections with friends and family
