Following the DOD Survey of Health Related Behaviors Among Military Personnel results, which suggests that military members between the ages of 18 and 25 are more likely to binge drink than their civilian counterparts, DAPMA recently graduated its first 20 prevention specialists.

Holdeman said DAPMA has submitted a radical plan for CPS to replace the programs it currently teaches, such as the Drug and Alcohol Program Advisor and Alcohol and Drug Abuse Leaders courses, by FY07.
"If approved, CPS will be the course, and the prevention specialists will then be able to go out and teach the courses DAPMA previously taught," said Holdeman, who is also a clinical psychologist.
