The Milton Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition has released a Parent Survey as a part of their on-going Community Health Assessment. This anonymous survey is intended for all Milton parents and guardians, male and female, who have at least one child in 6th through 12th grade. The Parent Survey can be accessed on-line here: tinyurl.com/y2t38zqj
Milton’s last Community Health Assessment (CHA) was completed in 2016; it also included a Parent Survey completed by more than 800 Milton residents. Results of the CHA were presented to the community in 2016. It helped the Coalition secure a 5-year federal grant for the town to focus on preventing drug and alcohol misuse among youth starting in 2018.
The assessment is critical for understanding what substance use challenges Milton faces and why. It helps the coalition know if their work is making a difference, and gives them valuable input from residents, both youth and adults. This information helps the Coalition more effectively focus their efforts. Laurie Stillman, Director of the MSAPC said, “Research has shown us that, despite the importance of their peers in the lives of adolescents, parents are still the most important influence in their children’s lives. This is why it is so important for the coalition to understand the beliefs and values of parents and guardians in Milton.”
