In November of 2016, we looked into the growing number of Drug Free Clubs of America in the Mountain State.
Drug Free Clubs function as chapters of Drug Free Clubs of America, a national nonprofit dedicated to preventing substance abuse via a unique model that engages the community, families, and schools.
On drug testing days, which take place randomly at member schools, the student members are asked to complete an electronic survey. Drug Free Clubs of America compiles the surveys and utilizes the data to better inform their work with young adults.
The following survey data, compiled during the 2015-2016 school year, includes data from all seven West Virginia chapters and their cumulative 808 student members.
