Ajo Substance Abuse Prevention and Education Coalition (SAPE)

Funded by Arizona Complete Health, Ajo Substance abuse Prevention and Education coalition seeks to educate, empower and ensure that all youth and their families are provided the tools and resources needed to help them lead safe, productive and addiction free lives. The coalition works to identify existing programs in Ajo to address youth and family issues and to provide the community with tools to protect against risky and unhealthy behaviors such as underage drinking, youth use of marijuana and misuse of prescription and over-the-counter medications.  

With many partners including the Pima County Sherriff’s department, Ajo Unified School District, and several others, SAPE is able to reach a broad scope of youth in Ajo, Arizona. 

Our Mission: To educate, Empower, and Ensure that all youth and their families are provided the tools and resources needed to help them lead Safe, Productive, and Addiction-free lives.

Our Vision: To Foster a Trauma-informed community by showing respect for all, no matter what their social, emotional, physical or legal status- in order to both address and prevent substance use disorders.
