This informational packet was designed to familiarize you with the basics of ASAP, its members and its projects, as well as provide information on the science of prevention. I hope you find it to be helpful.

The ASAP Coalition is facilitated by a part time Project Director and part time Coalition Coordinator, paid for by the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board. The Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board also allocates funding for ASAP activities each year, but most projects are -financed through donations and event sponsorships. The coalition is led by its members - People just like you.

The ASAP coalition has various subcommittees that develop based on the changing needs in our communities. Some of the current subcommittees are:

  • Overdose Outreach Subcommittee

  • Education Subcommittee

  • Medication Disposal Subcommittee

  • Anti-Stigma Subcommittee

The Coalition also has Planning Committees whose sole purpose is to organize ASAP events. Our typical yearly events include:

  • the ASAP Drug Summit in the Spring

  • the ASAP Track Meet in the Summer

  • the ASAP Recovery Rally in the Fall

Subcommittee and planning meetings are open to all members. Meeting dates and times are announced at each meeting and printed in the meeting agenda. You can be added to a subcommittee or planning committee email list by expressing your interest to the Coalition Coordinator, or by completing the ASAP Membership form.

I appreciate you taking the time to join our Coalition’s effort to build a community that is able to successfully manage its substance abuse problem today, while ensuring that future generations do not become impacted. Community problems require a community response.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
