Hispanic Coalition for the Prevention of Substance Abuse

The Hispanic Coalition for the Prevention of Substance Abuse is a partnership of people interested in the prevention of drug abuse in the Latino community and the general population in Metro Atlanta.

This group is formed by different members of our community including youth, state/local agencies, law enforcement agencies, school representatives, parents, religious/fraternal organizations, civic/volunteer groups, business community, and health care professionals.

The team was initially created in 2009 under a SPF-SIG grant given to CETPA to prevent underage drinking arrests and car crashes. Its first name was Team for Latino Alcohol Abuse Prevention (TLAAP). After the grant objectives were met, the team continued working this time under another underage drinking project for the Georgia Strategic Prevention System (GA-SPS). In 2013 the coalition decided to change its name to CHISPAS in order to include the prevention of prescription drug abuse and other drugs.

We currently support the following initiatives:
Our meetings are held the third Friday of each month at 9:00 am. At our Prevention facilities. Come and joins us prevent alcohol, tobacco and other drugs in our community.
