The COPPASA program is the outreach arm of AARS Outreach and Intake Department. The program is designed to identify, contact, and enroll Asian and Pacific Islander drug users and their partners for culturally appropriate services.
COPPASA provides intervention, health education and information, TB, HEP B/C, STD and HIV screening, family and individual counseling, emotional support, crisis intervention, assessment, referrals, and direct access to drug treatment.
Taking It To The Streets, COPPASAs Health Van Outreach, provides easier access to an essential part of our population, a service that has become a necessary and much needed component of our outreach services; it has allowed the program to serve the broader segment of our client population by bringing our services to the neighborhoods. If you would like to visit our Health Van, please contact the Program Director to coordinate your visit and to ensure that the time and place of its operation will be accurate. Areas we are conducting outreach include, but are not limited to, the City neighborhood districts
of the Tenderloin, South of Market, Mission, Haight, Richmond, and Sunset districts.
All services provided by COPPASA are free and confidential. Our staff is multi-cultural and multi-lingual in English, Vietnamese, Cantonese, Mandarin, Samoan and Tagalog.
COPPASAs office hours are 9:00am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday. Outreach hours vary upon program needs or activities.
This program is funded by Community Substance Abuse Services of the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
