With the exception of some parts of rural Yavapai County, substance abuse among young people has generally declined in recent years, according to recent data presented by Mandy Small and Shana Malone with the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission.

In the Verde Valley, the number of young drug and alcohol abusers users has seemingly decreased, the frequency with which young people used these substances hasn’t changed that much.The information comes from surveys given to the county’s sixth, eighth and 12th graders and was presented at a special lunch meeting hosted my MATForce in Cottonwood Thursday, Jan. 24. MATForce is an agency dedicated to reducing substance abuse in Yavapai County.

The survey asked about a number of substances, from alcohol and tobacco to marijuana and synthetic drugs.

For the full story, see the Wednesday, Jan. 30, edition of the Cottonwood Journal Extra.
