Logo for ASAP

The Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention or, more simply, ASAP, is a coalition led by the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board. Its members are a network of people from all walks of life - health professionals, parents, educators, elected officials, merchants, business members, police, administrators, and students - who are concerned about alcohol, tobacco, and drug use among school-age children in Trumbull County.

Our goal is not an easy one, but it is a simple one: Prevent substance abuse among youth and create and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Introducing: The ASAP Opiate Task Force

The ASAP coalition was originally organized as a response to the underage alcohol use problem in Trumbull County. The coalition served as the catalyst behind the countywide “Parents Who Host Lose The Most” campaign. As members of the coalition became aware of the Opiate epidemic in our County, they decided to tackle the issue. In the spring of 2011, the ASAP Opiate Task Force was formed. The Task Force meets monthly and  its focus are youth education, identifying neighborhoods experiencing high rates of drug related crimes, providing community education, and providing education to medical professionals. The coalition has partnered with TAG Law Enforcement group, the Geauga Trumbull Solid Waste Management District and the Area Agency on Aging, District 11 on four prescription drug recovery take back events. The group has distributed medication lock boxes to area realtors to prevent prescription medication thefts during open houses. ASAP also is represented on the Governor’s Statewide Opiate Task Force.
