Chronic Substance Abuse Program (CSAP)

en Espanol

The Chester County Chronic Substance Awareness Program (CSAP) provides treatment and support to justice involved individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder (SUD). CSAP utilizes a collaborative and problem-solving approach by connecting participants to state-licensed substance abuse treatment providers for assessment and treatment. In addition, CSAP utilizes a random SUD testing program to aid participants in their recovery.
