Why should you get involved with MAPSA?  A comprehensive and active statewide substance abuse prevention association benefits Maine and its communities in many ways. MAPSA works to:

  • Create a statewide climate where communities are empowered to address substance abuse issues.
  • Demonstrate to key stakeholders that substance abuse prevention needs to be a statewide public health priority.
  • Provide a network for prevention professionals and coalition members to identify and take action on common issues.
  • Provide an avenue for dissemination of current research, best practices, publications, and resources.
  • Identify opportunities for state and federal resources.
