The Mission of the Agap Program (AP) is to provide intensive education, constructive intervention, and supportive assistance toward the elimination of all dysfunctional behaviors and lifestyles; which lead to substance abuse. Our primary service goal for each recovering client is to effectively and permanently replace the use, misuse, and/or abuse of dangerously addictive drugs and alcohol with new skills and behavior patterns for sober living.
ASAP is a multi-faceted substance abuse program designed to educate, assist and support persons who are referred for violations involving drugs and/or alcohol. Our service delivery system is grounded in positive intervention strategies and modalities which are constructive, supportive, non-judgmental; inspirational; and encouraging. To this end, our primary purpose is to educate our clients about the catastrophic realities and deleterious effects of drugs and alcohol as gateways
to addiction. And to orient them to more productive behavioral and social lifestyles that support and sustain sobriety.
