Addressing Youth Substance Use at the County Level: A Lunchtime Discussion

Youth substance use is a challenge in communities across the United States. Persistent substance use among youth can lead to a string of long-term negative health, social and financial outcomes for individuals, families and communities. The prevalence and complexity of substance use among youth requires robust prevention, intervention and treatment strategies. Consequently, public health systems, primary care providers, community and behavioral health services and addiction centers — many of which are operated or supported by county governments — must be prepared to respond.

Join experts from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Rescue Social Change Group, The Truth Initiative and county officials as we explore the current trends and patterns around youth substance use and learn more about what counties are doing to tackle the issue in their own communities. A new NACo publication, County Perspectives on Youth Substance Use, will be disseminated at the event.
