Substance Abuse Program

The Navy’s Substance Abuse Program was developed in the early 1970s with the goal of returning service members with substance use problems to full and productive service. Over the past 38 years the program has changed to adapt to the needs of the Navy and to the changing landscape of substance abuse and dependency prevention and treatment. General education, evaluation and referral for treatment are provided at the Wellness Center. Referrals may be made via command DAPA, your primary care provider or by calling (228) 871-2256.


1.   We admitted we were powerless over alcohol--that our lives had become unmanageable.
2.   Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3.   Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to God, as we understood Him.
4.   Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5.   Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6.   Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7.   We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8.   Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9.   Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
