MATFORCE to host Community Solutions Forum

MATFORCE invites the community to help the fight against drug abuse by attending a Community Solutions Forum.

If you were asked whether drug or alcohol abuse creates serious problems among the youth and adults in our community, how would you answer? If you were asked what problems are related to substance abuse would you include bullying, violence, crime, child abuse, family problems, job loss, health problems and addiction?

Did you know that drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the U.S., surpassing auto accidents? Should we all be concerned?

The 2012 Arizona Youth Survey reveals that marijuana use and underage drinking are on the rise in Yavapai County. Sadly, Yavapai County is above state and national averages in youth substance abuse.

Share your suggestions at a Drug Abuse Community Solutions Forum at 6 p.m. Jan. 29 at the Hampton Inn & Suites Meeting Room, 2901 N. Glassford Hill Road, Prescott Valley or 6 p.m. Jan. 22 in Cottonwood at the Cottonwood Recreation Center, 150 S. Sixth Street.

For more information call 708-0100 or visit matforce.org.
