By forging partnerships, by mobilizing both human and financial resources, and by inspiring people to join us to create solutions, we change the game around these three critical issues:
The Cabell County Substance Abuse Prevention Partnership (CCSAPP) is a coalition of various agencies, organizations and individuals working together to reduce local substance abuse with strong collaborative partnerships and community ownership, using awareness, education and community-wide solutions. CCSAPP is primarily funded by the Drug Free Communities Grant #SP021658-06 from ONDCP and SAMHSA. Additional funding is provided by a sub-grant of the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant administered through the WV Division of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse.
The social, health and criminal consequences of substance abuse are costly to the community, devastating to families, and highly preventable. Research shows that prevention efforts comprising multiple strategies throughout a community can reduce substance abuse in that community.
Increase community collaboration.
Reduce youth and adult substance abuse by addressing underage drinking, prescription drug misuse, heroin and the illegal use of marijuana.
