Army Substance Abuse Program Logo

ASAP is a comprehensive program that provides services to active duty service members, Army Reserves/National Guardsmen (while on active duty), family members and Department of Defense civilians.

The multi-faceted program is comprised of clinical and non-clinical functions, to include: Prevention Education, Clinical Counseling Services, Suicide Prevention & Education, Military and Civilian Drug Testing, Risk Reduction, Employee Assistance Program and Adolescent Support and Counseling Service (ASACS).

There are 8 sections of the Army Substance Abuse Program:

Prevention & Education

Prevention & EducationThe Army Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) Prevention & Education program is a multifaceted program that reaches more than 30,000 people yearly.

We offer alcohol and other drug prevention, education services to active duty, family members, retirees, National Guard, Reservists and Department of the Army civilians.

Our main goal is to provide training and education to units about alcohol and other drugs, training materials and resources for commanders and Unit Prevention Leaders, and current information on drug and alcohol trends affecting the military community.

Military Drug Testing Program

The objectives of the Military Drug Testing Program are to:

  • Deter soldiers from abusing illicit substances.
  • Facilitate early identification of alcohol and/or other drug abuse.
  • Enable commanders to assess the security, military fitness, good order and discipline of their units, and to use information obtained to take appropriate action (e.g., Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), administrative or other actions, including referral to the ASAP clinic for screening, evaluation and possible treatment).
  • Monitor rehabilitation of those who require testing as part of their rehabilitation plan.
  • Determine the presence of a controlled substance in the urine or alcohol in the blood or breathe during inspections.
  • Collect data on the prevalence of alcohol and/or other drug abuse within the Army in Hawaii.

We provide drug testing supplies, breathalyzer devices to conduct alcohol breath analysis, and a computer laboratory is available for Unit Prevention Leaders (UPLs) to administer the Army Drug Testing Program (ADTP).

For additional information, contact the Drug Testing section at 808-655-6048/0682.

Civilian Drug Testing Program

Drug Testing ProgramsThe purpose of the Army’s Civilian Drug Testing Program is to execute the Drug-free Federal Workplace (DFW) Executive Order (EO) 12564 dated 15 September 1986.  The Army Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) is mandated by Department of Army (DA) to oversee and monitor the program as per AR 600-85, 2 February 2009 and DA PAM 600-85, 15 October 2001.

Department of Transportation (DOT) safety sensitive positions are tested by DA as per the Urine Specimen Collection Handbook for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs, 23 June 2000, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Public Health Service.  More information on the DOT program can be located through the U.S. Department of Transportation, Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy and Compliance Office, at

 Civilians are mandated to be tested if they fall into one of the following categories:

  • Employees occupying Test Designated Positions (TDP) and/or Department of Transportation (DOT) safety sensitive positions.
  • Employees on the job where there is a reasonable suspicion they are using illegal drugs or misusing alcohol.
  • Employees on the job who have an accident or unsafe practice.
  • Employees who volunteer to be tested.

Employee Assistance Program

The ASAP Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is designed to assist civilian employees in identifying and resolving personal problems that may affect their job performance or well being. The EAP is run by a civilian program Coordinator (EAPC) whose job includes prevention, identification, assessment and referral for treatment. Typical non-alcohol and drug related problems that the EAPC might help with include: financial, legal, family, marital, interpersonal relationships, anger management, stress management and other issues.

For additional information, call 808-655-6046/6047.

Risk Reduction Program

The ASAP Risk Reduction Program (RRP) is a commander’s program that is visually presented as a target which depicts 14 high-risk behaviors. The high-risk behavior rates are displayed on a shot group. Rates in the red ring could indicate potential problem areas. From this, the commander can decide which action to take to solve the behavioral problems.

RRP focuses on effective use of installation resources and coordinates effort between agencies utilizing the Installation Prevention Team to devise and implement effective interventions. The program is designed to increase soldier and mission readiness, allowing commanders to track soldier high-risk behaviors within their command.

Components of the RRP include administration of the Unit Readiness Inventory (URI), Reintegration Unit Readiness Inventory (R-URI), data collection and analysis. The RRP is managed by a civilian contractor program coordinator whose responsibilities include assessment, analysis, education, intervention and reduction.

Suicide Awareness & Prevention Program

The Suicide Awareness/Prevention Program office provides support to active duty Army, Reserve, family members and Department of the Army civilians assigned to Hawaii.

Learn more at on the Suicide Awareness & Prevention Program tab.

Army Substance Abuse Program Clinic

The Army Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) provides an array of alcohol and substance abuse outpatient treatment services for all active duty military, active Reservists, and active National Guard personnel. All adult family members are accepted for services on a space available basis.

We don't expect everyone to come to us ready to change. We understand that most people are ambivalent about changing. Our counselors are trained to help transition clients through the stages of change: Pre-contemplation, Contemplation, Preparation, Action, and Maintenance, by listening to the pros and cons of changing their behaviors and respecting their decisions. We also know that real change happens from the inside, based on personal values, goals and beliefs. We utilize a motivational interviewing approach.

Our goal is to assist each Soldier with creating a personal health and wellness plan in addition to developing an individualized treatment plan that targets the stressors in their life that are causing the imbalances in their body's energy system.

Treatment is designed to increase patients' awareness of the impact of alcohol and drugs on their lives, to facilitate responsible decision making, and to develop a plan for continued growth upon completion of treatment. Aftercare in the form of periodic evaluation is provided to complete the recovery process for up to one year.

Adolescent Support and Counseling Service (ASACS)

Adolescent Substance Abuse Counseling ServiceAcross the United States, new and expanded prevention and treatment programs help youth address alcohol and other drug problems. Adolescent teens of Army personnel stationed abroad face similar problems, combined with the added strain of adjusting to a new culture, new peers, and often an increase in the availability of alcohol and other drugs. In response to the situation, the Army Center for Substance Abuse Programs (ACSAP) and Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) offer the Adolescent Support and Counseling Service (ASACS) program.

ASACS Counselors in Hawaii are located at Mililani, Leilehua and Radford High Schools, Aliamanu Intermediate, Wheeler, and Wahiawa Middle Schools. Other offices are located in Building 647, Lewis St. (across from Sgt. Smith Theater and near the Tax Office) on Schofield Barracks, and at the Youth Center at Aliamanu Military Reservation.

All Counselors are Licensed Clinicians and are certified in substance abuse counseling. ASACS provides a continuum of care to adolescents and their families from prevention to early intervention to outpatient treatment. A thorough assessment will determine the most appropriate level of care to meet the needs of each individual.

Additional Resources:

If you would like to refer an adolescent to ASACS or if you have any questions, call 808-655-9944.

ASAP has online training (CAC required) available for service members' and Department of the Army civilians' to use in annual training requirements.
