Fair Lawn Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention
The Fair Lawn Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention, FLASAP, focuses its efforts towards the prevention of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse. The purpose of FLASAP is to develop and support prevention programs for outreach and community support and to educate the community regarding substance abuse issues.
Who We Are
FLASAP is a coalition of health professionals, parents, educators, elected officials, merchants, police, administrators, and students who are concerned about alcohol, tobacco, and drug use in our community.
What We Do
In order to make prevention goals realistic and manageable, specific needs are identified and objectives are developed by the Alliance, in conjunction with the Bergen County Office on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse. This needs assessment is evaluated every (3) years in addition to creating new prevention programs based on the needs of our community.
The FLASAP members and concerned residents share their concerns and ideas at monthly meetings normally held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, 6:30pm in Room 201 of Borough Hall. Please call for specific dates.
Funding for the Municipal Alliance is made possible through a grant from the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. The grant, which is managed through the Bergen County Department of Health Services (Bergen County Alliance) awarded the Borough $15,279 in 2016-2017. The Alliance matches the grant through member in-kind service & fundraising activities.
