Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center

Substance Abuse Prevention

The initiatives in this program started in 1996 and have been comprehensive in nature. Outcomes have been astounding and celebratory. For example, 30-day tobacco use among eighth graders declined from 26.2% in 1995, to 9% in 2009. This has happened with expert advice, hard work, grant support and community participation in a comprehensive approach. 

See our Substance Abuse Treatment Guide for help and treatment services for people whose alcohol and other drug use is negatively affecting their lives.
