  • Alcohol use is higher in Lincoln County than the national level.
  • 41% of 12th graders in Lincoln County have used marijuana in their lifetime.
  • Prescription drug use remains a problem. 12% of teens across the nation report abusing pills.
  • Parents and professionals are asking for more resources to help families address the local substance abuse problem.

What is the Not My Kid campaign?

  • A campaign designed to assist families with youth that are not involved in the legal system or receiving services from other agencies.
  • A campaign identified to serve a population in Lincoln County that is not already receiving services.
