USS Abraham Lincoln's (CVN 72) Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions
"Shipmates Helping Shipmates"


Mission of Lincoln's CSADD: Create a culture in which our Shipmates are helping Shipmates maintain a course of success through good decision making.

Description of Lincoln's CSADD: Today, CSADD is a peer-to-peer mentorship program used Navy-wide. The program is geared at Sailors 18 to 25 years old, to reinforce our culture of “Shipmates helping Shipmates”. Not only is the program used to prevent Sailors from destructive behavior but it is also used as a tool to help build leadership skills in young Sailors. The program is different because it gives young Sailors the opportunity to help each other through peer to peer interaction and to come up with their own creative ways to combat destructive behavior. CSADD helps sailors tackle everything from responsible drinking to suicide prevention, in a manner which they can relate to.


We are the Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions.
We are Sailors helping Sailors.
We are dedicated to making good decisions on and off duty.
We are responsible for our own actions and the well-being of our fellow shipmates.
We establish the standard representing a good Sailor....
We will respect ourselves and others at all times.
