Our Goals

Every year, the Scituate FACTS coalition create goals based on the local substance use challenges. We conduct ongoing analysis of data, including self-reported rates of substance use by local youth. We consider these trends, along with our local risk factors, protective factors, and capacity, to create a detailed action plan each year. The coalition goals for 2019-2020 are to: reduce binge drinking, reduce marijuana use, reduce riding with a driver who had been drinking or using marijuana, and reduce nicotine vaping.

Our goal is to lower rates of risky behavior among youth in Scituate and to support families who are impacted by substance use.
