Residents are being asked to complete the 2017 Shelton Community Substance Abuse Prevention Survey. According to officials, this survey collects local data for planning and helps confirm or refute Community and Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition assumptions. This is the fifth year of the survey designed by the Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery to take a look at community social norms. The survey also asks what Shelton adults believe about youth substance use, collects baseline data for environmental strategies that target adult attitudes, and determines attitudes on law enforcement effectiveness, awareness, and public support.

Everyone is encouraged to complete the survey, found by clicking https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MASHON2017.

The survey is anonymous and your responses will be kept confidential. The survey is also voluntary and you can refuse to answer any question or stop the survey at any time. The survey will take about 10 minutes.
