Substance Abuse Statistics in Oklahoma Youth
- Adolescents who use alcohol may remember 10 percent less of what they have learned than those who don’t drink.
- Lower reading and math scores are linked to peer substance abuse. On average, students whose peers avoided substance use had test scores that were 18 points higher for reading, and 45 points higher for math.
- If the challenges in students’ learning, such as the problems directly related to underage drinking, are not addressed, then our youth will not be able to maximize their academic potential.
- For additional statistics, the websites listed below include the 2015 Oklahoma Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) Data and Reports, and the 2014 Oklahoma Prevention Needs Assessment (OPNA) Survey Results. (Source)
There are all kinds
of addicts, I guess.
We all have pain.
And we all look
for ways to make
the pain go away.
