Annapolis Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) Coalition

The ultimate goal of the ASAP coalition is to create positive community change in Annapolis.

About Us

It has been identified that there is a critical need for a community based coalition in the zip codes 21401 and 21403 located in Annapolis, Maryland.

Overall, Anne Arundel County’s most significant health issues are found in our very own community of Annapolis. As stated in the Anne Arundel Community Health Assessment of Need (CHNA), the city of Annapolis is ranked 2nd highest for alcohol consumption and abuse for ages 12 to 20.

In the summer of 2016, Serenity Sistas’ Inc. developed a partnership with Restoration Community Development Corporation (RCDC) to form the ASAP Coalition.

The Annapolis Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) coalition will work in the community promoting public health, safety, and wellness for Annapolis families and community members.

ASAP Coalition’s Mission
To facilitate healthy community change to prevent and reduce alcohol & opioid use, among youth & young adults, through locally lead collaborations & evidence-based prevention strategies.

ASAP Coalition’s Goal
To provide and implement early evidence-based prevention strategies reducing alcohol and drug use, among 12-17 year old Annapolis youth. 

The ASAP coalition will align themselves with the Maryland Strategic Prevention Framework (MSPF) goals by facilitating a systematic, data driven approach. We will generate and monitor priorities for the prevention, of the targeted population, of alcohol consumption levels and substance abuse in the City of Annapolis, Maryland.

Please come out and increase your awareness of this fatal epidemic – it affects all communities.

Are you concerned that your child might be experiencing with drugs or addicted to drugs? Do you want to be prepared to teach your younger children never to start using? Are you looking for help with treatment?

“Not My Child” is a special presentation to remove the stigma of heroin addiction and get help for families caught in the web of drugs. This presentation will include a panel of experts, question and answer from the audience and treatment providers ready to provide information and referral.

“Not My Child” is focused on providing awareness by providing the facts of abuse of prescription drugs and the escalation of heroin use in our communities. The Not My Child discussion taking place in our communities provides an open, honest conversation regarding the use of drugs by children and adults in every community, the issue does not discriminate.

“Not My Child” is a collaborative effort supported by multiple county agencies, non-profits and community members working together to educate parents, families and communities on the impact of addiction on the individual, family and community.

The “Not My Child” program is created, supported and facilitated by County Executive’s Office of Constituent Services.
