ASAP-NJ is an organization of individuals employed in schools, agencies or school-based programs whose functions include advocating and developing a school-based student assistance/substance awareness program. The group meets the needs of youth in the education, prevention, intervention, and referral services for high-risk behaviors, including substance abuse and violence issues. A major portion of ASAP-NJ’s work in schools involves mental health issues–emotional, psychological support services, crisis intervention and referrals to mental health facilities.
Members can attend a state conference, county monthly meetings and workshops. ASAP-NJ provides specialized training on student assistance programs, a newsletter and access to legal counsel.
