National Drug Facts Week – New PAYS results

Thank you for taking part in the National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® (NDAFW).  We hope that you were able to learn some new things about drugs and about our county.   We are excited to see what the next PAYS (Pennsylvania Youth Survey) which is administered with youth in 6th, 8th, 10th and 12th grades will show.  The results aren’t available yet, but the survey was done with students in the fall of 2017 and we are hopeful to see some changes in our county with the new 2017 results.

Since the last survey was done, the prevention team at WDAC has been doing different evidence based programing with the students, a newly developed website PA Stop campaign brought to us by the Commonwealth Prevention Alliance was introduced and the work of the Overdose Task Force with prevention/awareness programs and campaigns has taken place.  Not to mention our Facebook, website and community outreach.  Keep checking back as we will post the updated information when it becomes available.
