Student Assistance Program

The Student Assistance Prevention-Intervention Services Program (SAPISP) is a comprehensive, integrated model of services that fosters safe school environments, promotes healthy childhood development and prevents alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse.
This program places Student Assistance Professionals in schools to provide Tier 1 universal prevention programs, and Tier 2 & 3 interventions and supports for students who are using or at-risk for using substances.
