Tioga County Advocacy, Support And Prevention Coalition (ASAP)
Was re-established in September of 2016 when community leaders stepped forward and wanted to find a local solution to the opioid and overdose epidemic. Coalition partners share a set of common values throughout their communities. Many agencies, businesses, and individuals are involved in collaborative working relationships and routinely combine resources and share information.
Coalition partners have also worked together on different community assessments and assisted each other in collecting data. This helps assure that issues such as substance misuse and mental health remain a priority area of focus in Tioga County.
We strengthen community networks by connecting people to resources, encouraging youth leadership, and providing up to date information on a variety of current topics.
We educate by increasing public awareness of the harmful effects of substance misuse, help parents recognize signs and symptoms, and teach adults how to talk to their kids, often about substance use. It is our goal to spread awareness and reduce stigma in the community we serve, and we believe that education plays a big role in that.
We believe in data by collecting data to inform the direction of the coalition’s efforts and to provide an accurate picture of local conditions as the relate to substance misuse and risk/protective factors. We rely on all of our community partners to assist in making sure we have the most current data. We especially thank our 6 county school districts for partnering with us on collecting youth data.
