Press Release, Clinton, TN, August 2018 — ASAP of Anderson is thrilled to be celebrating 10 Years of Prevention this September. ASAP’s mission is to prevent and reduce substance misuse among youth and adults in Anderson County. Join us for a 10th Anniversary Celebration and logo reveal on Tuesday, September 4th 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at Anderson County Chamber of Commerce. In addition to the logo reveal, there will be light lunch, cake, and take away “swag” for attendees.
ASAP is proud to have our volunteers serve over 11,000 hours toward prevention since 2008.

ASAP has continued to grow and change over the past 10 years. As part of that growth, we are excited to reveal our brand-new logo in celebration of our 10th anniversary. ASAP’s image is changing, but our mission stays the same. We continue to value compassion, knowledge, connectedness, progress, and proactivity in order to make strides toward preventing and reducing substance misuse in our community.
