The Hudson Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition

The MetroWest Adolescent Health Survey has uncovered areas of concern for Hudson’s youth, especially the prevalence of substance use. Additionally, substance use increases dramatically once youth reach high school. Visit Community Health for more information about substance use among Hudson youth.

In 2012, the Hudson Board of Health received a three-year grant from the MetroWest Health Foundation to support community efforts addressing youth substance abuse prevention, intervention, and increased access to treatment. This grant ended in 2015.

Hudson was awarded a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health's Bureau of Substance Abuse Services. The grant is Substance Abuse Prevention Collaborative (SAPC), and it's focus is on underage drinking prevention.
