Today’s teens are at a great risk for substance use/ abuse due to peer pressure, media, and accessibility. According to the 2009 Arkansas Prevention Needs Assessment Student Survey, almost 16 percent of young people admitted to taking a drug within the last 30 days. That is only the ones who admitted to it on the survey. The actual percent is certainly higher. If you suspect your teen has an issue with substance use/abuse, call us at 479-575-9471 and ask for our Assessment Screener.
