Welcome to CCSAP
The Coastal Coalition for Substance Abuse Prevention (CCSAP) is a five county coalition covering Carteret, Craven, Jones, Onslow and Pamlico counties. Each county has a Substance Abuse Prevention Task Force working within their local communities. As evidence of each county's hard work, CCSAP was awarded a Drug Free Communities grant through the Office of National Drug Control Policy. We work toward policy and environmental change to prevent underage drinking and to reduce the abuse of prescription medications. CCSAP continues to promote the Domino Strategy™ for Responsible Alcohol Use. The Domino Strategy™ is a social marketing campaign intended to change the norms, attitudes and beliefs regarding alcohol use. Additionally, CCSAP will continue to work with our public, private, and non-profit partners; our federal, state, and local governments, and our inspiring youth advocates to create communities free from substance abuse. We encourage you to learn more

Pamlico County Permanent Prescription Lock Box Dedication On Friday May 24th:
On Friday May 24th at 9:00 AM, Pamlico County Sheriff's Department will be holding a ceremony to mark the opening of their permanent prescription drop box.
Having unused prescription medicine in the home can be dangerous. Unintention poisoning deaths has increased dramatically over the past 10 years. Some people break into houses looking for pain medicine or may steal needed pain relief from a family member. Past recommendations were to mix the drugs with kitty litter and throw it away or flush it but now we know that contaminates our waters.
These permanent drop boxes provide a 24 hour location to dispose of their medications anonymously. See you there!
Donations to CCSAP, S.A.P.H.E. and the Charlie D. Hooks Leadership Award are always accepted and appreciated.
