Substance Abuse Prevention Program

National Helpline - 1-800-662-HELP (4357)

The mission of the WA State National Guard Substance Program (SAP) is to increase the readiness and resiliency of Soldiers and Families through:

Education and Training- Provide prevention education and training to Soldiers and command.

Early Identification- Assist in identification of users through drug testing, medical evaluation, screening, investigation, apprehension or self-referral.

Risk Reduction- Compile, analyze, and assess behavioral risks to identify trends and units with high-risk profiles. Provide methods to eliminate or mitigate risks.

Deterrence- Help units initiate smart testing and advise Soldiers of command policies.

Screening and Self-Assessment- Provide screening and self-assessment tools to Soldiers to evaluate their own risk.

Rehabilitation- SAP is not a treatment provider, but helps Soldiers find approved treatment facilities around where they live to ensure successful completion of rehab.

Targeted Intervention- Provide educational and motivational programs which focus on the adverse effects and consequences of alcohol and other drug abuse.

WA SAP Team has one Alcohol and Drug Control Officer (ADCO), one Prevention Coordinator (PC), and one Drug Testing Coordinator (DTC). We coordinates all substance abuse and risk reduction activities, assists commanders in identifying and referring Soldiers with known or possible substance abuse issues, and monitors and evaluates referral, separation and completion rates. Conduct prevention training and administer the Unit Risk Inventory to all Units. Train all Unit Prevention Leaders and provides guidance on monthly urine analysis and guidance to leadership when urine analysis are positive.

Additionally, the SAP Team serve as subject matter experts for the SAP program and Army Regulation 600-85, and act as a resource for Soldiers and command with any questions and concerns. Please do not hesitate to contact any member of the SAP program team for more information.
