Substance Use In Grafton

SOCIAL HOST LIABILITY FORUM

The Coalition is hosting a Social Host Liability Forum on May 4th, 2017 at Grafton High School.  The forum is open to all residents and is designed to provide information on state laws and methods to provide a safe, supportive system for kids and parents.

 

Our goal is to accurately inform the community on substance abuse concerns in Grafton while offering strategies that are proven to have positive impacts.

Based on recent Youth Risk Behavior Surveys in Grafton, perceptions towards underage alcohol usage came back higher than national averages as the graph below states.  The Coalition is working with the community to develop measures to alter this perception and implement positive alternatives.
