The Regional Needs Assessment is information on the 28 counties of South Central Texas as it pertains to substance abuse prevention. This us the first year Prevention Resource Center for Region 8 has completed a needs assessment.

Data includes geographical information, how the population has changed and how it compares to the the state statistics.

The report  also included information from the Texas School Survey, which measures the drug use and perceptions of drug use  for youth in grades 7th to 12th grade.

This Regional Needs Assessment is an indicator of what’s going on in the Region 8 area, and helps community organizations with real data that can be used in grant writing, program development and to help with community buy-in.
