In 1998, a group of prevention professionals in
Maryland came together to form a professional
association to promote prevention as an important
field throughout the state. This active group created
position papers, defined prevention for other
professionals, assisted in statewide planning efforts
in a way employees are often unable to and
provided assistance to others in the prevention field.
Since then MAPPA has served as a forum for
discussion of issues, a means of networking within
the field and a voice to articulate prevention

Although the State of Maryland has made gains in
alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) prevention
over the last fifteen years, Maryland still has an
epidemic of alcohol, tobacco and other drug

MAPPA provides a forum to address these issues.
