The Substance Abuse Policy Board was established on May 9, 1990 with the adoption of Resolution No. 279-1990 per Florida Administrative Code requirements. The duties of the board are to address substance abuse problems, identify additional resources needed to address these problems, develop a prevention strategy and coordinate drug control efforts in Monroe County. The board shall also meet to review and recommend applications for funding under the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program. 

Members of the board serve by reason of their job position as outlined in Resolutions 288-1998 and 165-1999. All except the County Commissioner shall continue to serve until they are no longer in that position or termination of the Board by the Board of County Commissioners. The County Commissioner member will be designated by the Board of County Commissioners in November of each year.

At the August 17, 2016 Board of County Commissioner (BOCC) meeting, the BOCC approved designating the Substance Abuse Policy Advisory Board (SAPAB) to also serve as the Planning Council as it is necessary for the Florida Department of Children and Families, Office of Criminal Justice, Mental Health and Substance Abuse (CJMHSA) Reinvestment Grant (Program) and authorized the expansion of the current SAPAB membership to meet the statutory requirements of F.S. 394.657 for Planning Council activities. On August 22, 2016 the SAPAB met as the County Planning Council in order to meet the Department of Children and Families CJMHSA program requirements.
