The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Program was established on September 28, 1971, for the identification and treatment of alcohol and other drug dependent persons in the Armed Forces. It is required by Federal statutes that all Federal agencies provide alcohol and other drug abuse services to their employees.
The Department of the Army has determined that alcohol and other drug abuse among DA personnel cannot be tolerated due to the profound impact upon personnel readiness, safety assurance, and ultimately our military defense capability.
Our primary objective is to provide the substance abuser assistance, with the ultimate objective to restore them to full and productive performance.

ASAP has a professional staff educated and trained in the education, psychological, and sociological aspects of chemical dependency. Each treatment staff member is state certified in addictions counseling.
The Employee Assistance Program provides Department of the Army civilians with the opportunity to address any problem that is or could impact upon their duty performance. If the problem is alcohol or other drug abuse related, direct services are available to the employee through the ASAP.
For other types of problems, the EAP coordinator can arrange for appropriate assistance through other military or civilian agencies.
The drug testing coordinator is the educator for unit prevention leaders and is the installation coordinator for urinalysis testing.
