Students Against Substance Abuse (SASA) and the

Coppin Connects Substance Abuse & Mental Health Task Force and Coalition.

Aiming to educate the general population about substance abuse, dependency and mental health prevention strategies


Students Against Substance Abuse (SASA) is a newly formed substance abuse prevention and education organization.   The organization is composed of college students enrolled in the Alcohol and Substance Abuse  Counseling at Coppin State University. Our mission is to provide prevention and education services to youth, individuals, families, community leaders and businesses who are interested in learning more about the hazards of illicit chemical substances and strategies to prevent substance abuse and its related effects.

Coppin Connects Substance Abuse & Mental Health Task Force and Coalition has been established to bring campus-wide awareness and solutions to the substance abuse and mental health issues facing students attending Coppin State University.  The task force, consisting of one faculty, one staff member and four students from the Master of Science Program in Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling within the Department of Applied Psychology and Rehabilitation Counseling, first attended the Lonnie Mitchell Behavioral Health Policy Academy in March, 2009
