The Army Drug Testing Program is a command program composed of the Soldier, the commander, the Unit Prevention Leader (UPL), the ASAP staff, the Forensic Toxicology Drug Testing Laboratories (FTDTL), the Medical Review Officer and the Staff Judge Advocate. The program has three primary goals: To deter service members from abusing drugs including illegal drugs and other illicit drugs, be a tool for commanders to assess the security, military fitness, good order and discipline of their commands and serve as a basis to take appropriate action, adverse or other (including referral for treatment), with a service member based on a positive test result.


Prevention includes all measures taken to deter and reduce the abuse of substances (illegal drug, controlled drug, alcohol or other) and gambling disorder to the lowest possible level. Prevention efforts are targeted to the total force and tailored to diverse groups and integrated with other mission-related efforts. Prevention initiatives emphasize cooperation and partnerships with the installation and local communities. Education and training programs include information on the effects and consequences of abuse of substances and gambling disorder.

Prime for Life – A program that helps adults learn how to reduce their risk of alcohol related problems throughout life. It provides answers to questions people have about alcohol.


The Risk Reduction Program is a commander's program that is visually presented as a target which depicts 20 high-risk behaviors. The purpose of the risk reduction program is to reduce high-risk behavior in service members. The program focuses on effective use of installation resources and coordinates effort between agencies utilizing the Installation Prevention Team to implement effective interventions.
