What We Know
TPAUD conducts extensive data collection to understand the problem of underage substance use in Trumbull. Student surveys and focus groups provide us with information on youth attitudes and behavior around alcohol and drug use. From our surveys data, our work in the community, and the insights of our members, we know that PREVENTION WORKS in Trumbull. At TPAUD, we know that efforts to address youth alcohol and drug use must focus on the environment around our kids.
TPAUD surveys of all THS students in revealed that youth alcohol use in Trumbull has dropped dramatically since 2010, and vaping nicotine and marijuana use are at their lowest rates since 2007. This is great news! However, there is still work to be done. Please click on the image above for the full TPAUD Youth Survey 2021 Data Report.
