Army Substance Abuse Program mission is to strengthen the overall fitness and effectiveness of the Army´s workforce, to conserve manpower and enhance the combat readiness of Soldiers.
The primary goal of the ASAP website is to provide soldiers, commanders, ASAP personnel, Unit Prevention Leaders (UPL) and all other members of the Army community with an informative, user-friendly online environment.
- Increase individual fitness and overall unit readiness.
- Provide services which are proactive and responsive to the needs of the Army´s workforce and emphasize alcohol and other drug abuse deterrence, prevention, education, and rehabilitation.
- Implement alcohol and other drug risk reduction and prevention strategies that respond to potential problems before they jeopardize readiness, productivity, and careers.
- Restore to duty those substance-impaired Soldiers who have the potential for continued military Service.
- Provide effective alcohol and other drug abuse prevention and education at all levels of command, and encourage commanders to provide alcohol and drug-free leisure activities.
- Ensure all personnel assigned to ASAP staff are appropriately trained and experienced to accomplish their missions.
- Achieve maximum productivity and reduce absenteeism and attrition among civilian corps members by reducing the effects of the abuse of alcohol and other drugs.

- Why Get Help
Substance abuse and dependency effect mission readiness and personal well-being. Soldiers should seek help if they suspect they are having problems with alcohol or other drugs. They also have a responsibility to get help for their fellow Soldiers, as well.
- Self Reporting
Soldiers are encouraged to seek help voluntarily for drug and alcohol problems. While self-referral is the preferred method of identification, commanders are also responsible for identifying Soldiers at risk and for referring them to the ASAP for evaluation by the counseling staff and for supporting the recommended intervention and rehabilitation.
- Domestic Abuse
Domestic violence of all kinds (spouse abuse, elder abuse, and so forth) is not unusual in families suffering from alcohol and other drug abuse. Soldiers or their spouses should seek help through the local ASAP, Family Advocacy Program, or chaplain´s office.
- Intervention & Treatment
Alcohol and other drug problems are effectively addressed in most cases through engaged leadership, immediate intervention, and discipline if appropriate, education, counseling and rehabilitation.
