The ASAP supports the Army in maintaining and enhancing readiness by providing comprehensive wellness programs and services that promote and enhance healthy lifestyles and the total quality of life for military and civilian personnel in the home, in the work-place and in the community. Specific emphasis is given to preventing the adverse effects of alcohol, other drugs and their related high-risk behaviors.
The Army Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) is comprised of two components, Prevention education and rehabilitation. We provide prevention education and awareness campaigns, in the areas of alcohol and drug abuse prevention, suicide prevention, urinalysis testing, risk reduction, and civilian employee counseling. These programs are designed to support the overall fitness and effectiveness of the USAG Humphreys Community and to support combat readiness through the elimination of alcohol and/or other drugs abuse. Rehabilitation services are provided to restore to duty those substance-impaired Soldiers who have the potential for continued military Service.
• Increase individual fitness and overall readiness.
• Provide services which are proactive and responsive to the needs of the Camp Humphreys community.
• Emphasize alcohol and other drug abuse deterrence, prevention, education, and rehabilitation.
• Implement alcohol and other drug risk reduction and prevention strategies in response to potential problems
before they jeopardize readiness, productivity, and careers.
• Restore to duty those substance-impaired Soldiers who have the potential for continued military Service.
• Provide effective alcohol and other drug abuse prevention and education at all levels of command.
• Ensure ASAP staff are appropriately trained and experienced to accomplish their missions.
The Suicide Prevention Program provides community and individual empowerment through education and awareness. The program is designed to minimize suicidal behavior; thereby preserving mission effectiveness through individual readiness for Soldiers, Family Members and Civilians. We coordinate training for Soldiers, Family members, and civilians to develop and enhance suicide intervention skills using both the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and Ask, Care, Escort (ACE) curriculum. The ASIST is primarily for gatekeepers such as Family Advocacy Program workers, medical providers, chaplains, squad leaders, and first line supervisors whose duties involve assisting people who are more susceptible to suicide ideations or by the nature of their job may come in contact with a person at risk. ACE is designed for peer-to-peer suicide intervention and is available to anyone in the community who wants to gain added skills, knowledge, and confidence to intervene in a crisis. USAG Humphreys observes Suicide Prevention Month in September. This awareness campaign allows leaders to highlight suicide prevention and its impact on Soldiers, Families, and the community.
