 Program Overview

The Kitsap County Substance Abuse and Prevention program (KCSAAP) was first established by the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners in 1990 to develop substance abuse prevention resources and to support and assist with the coordination of existing prevention programs and services for youth, their families, schools, and communities. Our work and programs are supported by the Substance Abuse Prevention Coalitions and community partners. You can learn more about the Bremerton and North Kitsap coalitions by attending an event or prevention coalition meeting.

The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, division of Behavioral Health and Recovery provides funding for Coalitions as part of the Community Prevention & Wellness Initiative which focuses on the limited prevention resources to communities and provides long-term support for positive community change.
