Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program (SARP):

Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Programs (SARP’s) are key elements in the Navy’s overall alcohol and other drug abuse prevention and aftercare management programs.  The Navy program involves a treatment-oriented intervention model designed to enhance detection and identification, deter substance abuse, and rehabilitate alcohol abuse or alcohol dependent members who have potential for future service.


 The mission of the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program, Annapolis, is to support the medical readiness of personnel by providing:
  • Screenings and referral services for personnel whose performance has been adversely affected by issues of alcohol, prescription or non-prescription drugs, or gambling.
  • Assistance and counseling for members returning from treatment, to minimize deterring transitional issues. 
  • Alcohol/drug prevention education and outreach to area commands and NHCA beneficiaries. 
  • Assist in the rehabilitation process of members demonstrating a potential for continued service. 

SARP Services and Procedures

SARP services are provided to commands in the Annapolis Area complex including Naval Reserve Readiness Center Baltimore, and active and reserve Armed Forces units in the Eastern Maryland area.  Services are also provided to retirees, family members of military personnel, and eligible Department of Defense civilians.
  1. Screening and Referral. The SARP conducts screenings for self-referrals/walk-in, medical referrals, and command referral requests.  Referral assistance is provided for those personnel seeking help with requirements beyond the capabilities of the SARP.  Patients who are recommended for Intensive Outpatient (Level 2) treatment or higher may be referred to TRICARE Malcolm Grow Medical Center, SARP Norfolk, or any other Armed Forces or Civilian Alcohol and Drug Treatment Facility the referring command chooses.
  2. Treatment.
    Level 5 Alcohol and Drug-PRIME FOR LIFE Psychoeducation service.  (Psychoeducation refers to the process of providing education and information to those seeking or receiving substance use or mental health services, such as patients diagnosed with mental health conditions.) 

    Level 1 Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment services for active duty, Midshipmen, retirees, dependents and TRICARE beneficiaries, age 18 and older.

    Continuing Care.  SARP provides Continuing Care counseling support for individuals upon completion of formalized treatment as part of the command sponsored Aftercare program.
  3. Outreach.  Outreach services are conducted to ensure that the military and community agencies are aware of the services provided and how to access these services.  SARP will ensure that area Command DAPA’s are kept current on Navy policies and procedures pertaining to alcohol and drug abuse prevention and control, conduct educational lectures, and provide information on services and programs offered by the SARP.

    SARP provides education and training services to the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) through the USNA Alcohol and Drug Education Officer (ADEO). Additionally, SARP is a contributing member of the USNA Alcohol Working Group, which addresses all aspects of alcohol issues and impact on the Midshipmen student body.  Alcohol Working Group meetings are coordinated by the ADEO.      
  4. Prospective Counselor Screening.  Screenings and interviews are conducted for active duty individuals interested in the Navy Drug and Alcohol Counselor Program.  These screenings are a mandated component of the Navy Drug and Alcohol Counselors School application process.
    Mental Health Department.  SARP Annapolis is located within the command structure as part of the Mental Health Department.  The Mental Health Department Head provides clinical and administrative oversight of the SARP.
    The Department Head or assigned Clinical Psychologist, Mental Health Department serves as the main Licensed Independent Practitioner (LIP) for the SARP.  Any other licensed members of the Mental Health Department may also perform LIP duties. 

    A LIP must review SARP screenings resulting in a DSM-V diagnosis. 

    Patients recommended for placement in Level .5 treatment or higher require a LIP endorsement.  This may be a separate appointment to be scheduled with the LIP, for the same day of the Screening or the next available appointment on the LIP’s schedule calendar.    
  5. Privacy and Confidentiality:
    All patients will be given the Limits of Confidentiality and a Privacy Act statement to read and sign prior to their initial appointment.  The SARP counselor will discuss these issues verbally with the patient and will also sign attesting to same.  Health care personnel, counselors, and other program coordinators may use information retained by SARP for the sole purpose of therapeutic assistance to the patient.  Under certain circumstances, patient information may also be used by Department of the Navy and Department of Defense personnel.  Such information will not be released without written consent, except when deemed necessary and permitted under current directives and orders.  All files will be locked when not attended.  Files will be destroyed in accordance with current directives and Record Management instructions.
    **For additional SARP information or to schedule an appointment, please contact the SARP Manager at (410) 293- 1437
