Educational Service District 123, 3924 West Court St, Pasco WA 99301

The Prevention Specialist Certification Board of Washington (PSCBW) is pleased to provide this Washington State Substance Abuse Prevention Systems Training (WA-SAPST) based upon a national curriculum developed by the federal Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) and further developed by the PSCBW through a contract with the State of Washington Department of Social and Health Services’ Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (DBHR).

This training is supported by funds from DBHR and is offered in place of the Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST). The WA-SAPST was updated to include material relevant to prevention practitioners in Washington State. The main focus of the WA-SAPST is to train the participants in implementing the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) within Washington State. The WA-SAPST also meets the training requirements for the Community Prevention Wellness Initiative (CPWI).
