The Substance Abuse Prevention Program (KCSAAP) was first established by the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners in 1990 to develop needed substance abuse prevention resources and to support and assist with the coordination of existing prevention programs and services for youth, families, schools and communities.
Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery is funding Coalitions as part of the Community Prevention & Wellness Initiative which focus the limited prevention resources to communities and provide long-term support for positive community change.
