The Substance Abuse Prevention Program (SAPP) is an academic training program that provides course work in the areas of alcohol and other drug prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery, as well as related topics. The typical SAPP instructor has extensive applied experience working with clients, organizations, and communities. Most hold advanced degrees and certifications or licenses in their area of expertise.

Students, professionals, and community members may take SAPP courses to broaden their knowledge base and earn college credit. SAPP offers the coursework required to pursue the Oregon Certified Prevention Specialist (CPS) and the Oregon Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC) credentials through the Addiction Counselor Certification Board of Oregon (ACCBO).

SAPP is now using the Oba learning management system - from the University of Oregon. All SAPP course sites can now be found here, simply login above. Please visit for information about our academic tracks, courses, and instructors.
