Our Staff



CSAP's Southwest CAPT supports the integration of prevention research and practice in each of the nine states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Practicing substance abuse prevention goes beyond substance use and abuse to look closely at the underlying causes for substance abuse and identifies ways to promote healthy behavior.


CSAP's Southwest CAPT's mission is to support the exchange of knowledge between researchers and practitioners, increasing the application of science-based prevention programs, practices, policies, and principles at regional, state and local levels. Participation in the scientific process increases understanding and expands capacity of organizations and groups to support the development of safe and healthy communities.


Five important premises guide our work:
Skilled, knowledgeable, local people best solve local problems
Collaboration on a federal, state and local level promotes the unified advancement of prevention
State systems and community-based practitioners are able to identify, adaptively apply and evaluate research-based prevention approaches

Sound, comprehensive and continual evaluation at multiple levels promotes the effectiveness of prevention, providing reliable data for adjusting actions

People support what they help create

  CSAP's Southwest CAPT is among the six National Regional CAPT's, funded by the CSAP, and SAMHSA. To the fullest extent which resources allow, each CAPT is charged with providing technical assistance and training throughout its region.
