OUR MISSION: To develop a county-wide, culturally competent coalition that will work for the prevention and reduction of underage drinking and the misuse and abuse of all substances by all ages.

*The Need in White County: Alcohol is the drug most often used by White County youth:

  • Our youth have their first drink at an average age of 12.6 years.

  • 30.8% of 10th graders have used alcohol within the last 30 days.

  • 41.1% of 12th graders have used alcohol within the last 30 days.

  • 4.7% of 6th graders and 11.5% of 8th graders report binge drinking within the last 2 weeks.

*Results from 2007 APNA (Arkansas Prevention Needs Assessment) Survey

 


Please help us keep alcohol out of the hands of young children!
