 Program Overview

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.

Find resources below to help young people, their families and friends prevent substance abuse, learn more about drug and alcohol addiction and get help. 

Check out information on Kitsap County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalitions or attend a prevention coalition meeting to learn more and get involved
