“Take A Stand With The Minuteman:
Be Drug Free”


       Team Readiness 

  • NGB SAP has adapted a science-based, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Model program, for the National Guard entitled Team Readiness.
  • The curriculum has been established to enhance communication and support within guard units/wings by addressing (behavioral and health) risks associated with reduced readiness, particularly risks for substance abuse. Prevention Coordinators have been certified as Team Readiness facilitators.
  • Team Readiness consists of five mini modules that are designed to provide a fast paced, engaging, and brief 20-30 minute presentation.  Those units/wings that are indentified as at high risk can choose one or more modules to be delivered to unit by the Prevention Coordinator as part of the four hours annual substance abuse education requirement.
