One Child At A Time

Theme for 2022 Art Contest Entry

“Celebrate LIFE. Live Drug Free!”

According to the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission 2018 Arizona Youth Survey for Navajo County:
Navajo County teens who have ever used illicit drugs in their lifetime include:

Navajo County (Lifetime)

8th grade 10th grade 12th grade
Alcohol 23.50% 50.50% 56.80%
Marijuana 13.80% 39.50% 46.50%
All Rx 7.40% 16.70% 12.70%

And, despite the numbers, for many people, the facts about drugs are not clear.
