Under the leadership of OASAS Commissioner Karen Carpenter-Palumbo, OASAS has moved forward with developing addiction prevention models which are on the forefront of public health models to decrease the incidence and prevalence of addiction problems and to improve protective factors which improve the health of our communities in multiple areas not just substance abuse.

GCASA applauds the good work of OASAS and is proud to work with OASAS in a collaborative way to further prevention services around New York State and the country.
