Welcome to CCSAP
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 its 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. Our goals are reducing underage drinking and preventing misuse and abuse of prescription medications for our united vision: creating communities free from substance abuse!
Locked Medicine Boxes
We recommend you lock up prescriptions in a locked cabinet or drawer. If there's no lock on your cabinet, Pamlico High School will show you how to install a lock. If it is not an enclosed space, consider getting a locked box that can be permanently attached inside the cabinet, such as these from RxArmory. The important thing is to keep medicines locked away from curious children or from those who are looking for medicines to use recreationaly.
End of the Year Charitable Donation
How can you make a difference in the upcoming year? Consider a charitable donation to CCSAP. No one starts their teen years hoping to fight addiction as an adult. Studies show that adding alcohol and drugs to developing adolescent brains result in physical changes and learned behaviors that lead to addiction. With continued support from our communities and people like you, we are looking forward to helping youth live to their potential and growing generations of adults free from substance abuse. Please consider a charitable donation to CCSAP in your holiday plans.
Prescription Drug Disposal Sites
If you have expired prescriptions or medicines that you no longer are taking under a physician's order, dispose of them at a permanent prescription drop box. They are available 24 hours a day and all disposal are anonymous.
