The ASAP Program Inventory assesses substance abuse programming, including prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery, administered by ASAP member agencies. The ASAP Program Inventory is conducted as a regional analysis of the substance abuse prevention, treatment, enforcement and recovery-related programs administered by ASAP member agencies to the populations they serve (e.g., detained youth, incarcerated adults, probationers, arrestees, those with a serious mental illness, entire communities).
This subcommittee addresses the ASAP’s duties to:
- Assess substance abuse treatment service capacity in Arizona and detail gaps in service availability.
- Encourage state and local partnerships to engage in shared planning processes and build the capacity of local communities to meet identified needs and maximize resources.
- Identify and share effective practices to integrate strategies across systems that will leverage existing funding and increase access to services at the community level.
This work is conducted in order to:
- Identify evidence-based and promising practices in the substance abuse programming administered by Arizona Substance Abuse Partnership member agencies.
- Identify gaps in programming and services.
- Allow ASAP members and other stakeholders to present information on agency-specific and overall substance abuse programming needs to policymakers and potential funders (e.g., in grant applications).
- Provide recommendations regarding current and future programming.
- Develop and maintain the ASAP Locator.
