ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND
The purpose of the Artesia Drug & Crime Coalition (the “Coalition”) is to build and strengthen the capacity of the
community, to create a safe and healthy environment and to eliminate illegal drugs, gangs, and crime in the
community.


PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The purpose of the survey is to determine community risk and protective factors that influence substance abuse, and to help understand the types and patterns of substance abuse among young people, so that efforts to educate and prevent these problems can be tailored to local needs.

The benefits include identification of risk and protective factors that reflect both school and community. The Coalition will be able to address the issues that are affecting the community today and to highlight the things that are going well.

The survey will consist of surveying 8th, 10th and 12th grades during the same time-frame as Carlsbad and Loving
in order to get a complete Eddy County School Youth Survey. Reports and stats will be created, anti-drug posters
will be hung in the Junior High and High Schools. General administrative costs will also be covered.
