Prevention and Education Services provides awareness and educational classes, material resources, education consultation, special alcohol and other drug abuse awareness/prevention annual campaigns and other assistance to units, agencies, and installation programs. The goal of this program is to promote a comprehensive community wide prevention program to enhance the quality of life of all installation members and reduce the use and misuse of alcohol and the drugs of abuse. The Employee Assistance Program is available to civilian employees.

Personal problems can and do negatively impact job performance, attendance and safety on the job. The EAP works with the supervisor, clients, the Civilian Personnel Advisory Center and the bargaining unit to restore the employee to effective, satisfactory job performance.

The EAP is not an extension of management but we do work very closely with supervisors when employees sign a release of information to avail our clients with the optimum opportunity for success.

The EAP provides FREE and confidential screening services to employees and their family members on a variety of issues, such as, behavioral, and emotional problems including drug and alcohol abuse, marital or family problems, grief issues, etc. It a voluntary program and employees have the right to refuse assistance. However if the problems continue, management can take corrective actions/sanctions that may apply to the various situations.

The Biochemical Testing Services performs drug use and alcohol abuse deterrence and detection functions. The program provides commanders and supervisors with resources to perform urine collection for drug use identification urinalysis and breath-testing for alcohol abuse. All Soldiers submit to urinalysis and breathalyzer testing. Selected categories and classification of civilian employee positions are urinalysis tested on a regular random basis.

The Adolescent Substance Abuse Counseling Service provides prevention, early intervention, and counseling services to military family members ages 11 to 18. ASACS is a proactive program that works with schools, communities and other agencies to identify problems early to reduce the impact on military families.

Services include awareness presentations, assessments and individual, family and group counseling. Services are confidential. The Risk Reduction Program trains and assists commanders in identifying and reducing high-risk behaviors in our Soldier population. The program also promotes risk reduction as a prevention strategy, prevents unhealthy and destructive behaviors from reoccurring, and increases Soldier and unit readiness. This program reinforces combat readiness and is essential to a healthy deployable fighting force.
