The Prevention Specialist Certification
Board of Washington (PSCBW) is pleased to provide this Washington Substance

developed by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) and further
developed by the PSCBW through a contract with the Division of Behavioral
Health and Recovery Services (DBHR).

Prevention Systems Training (WA-SAPST) which is being offered in place of the
Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST). The WA-SAPST meets the
training requirements for Community Prevention Wellness Initiative (CPWI)

prevention practitioners in Washington State. The main focus of the WA-SAPST is
to train the participants in implementing the Strategic Prevention Framework
