Is the CPWI making a difference?

Make a differenceSome of the ways CPWI is already making a difference in communities:

  • Local ordinances have been passed that reduce youth access and exposure to alcohol.
  • Coalitions are working to raise awareness in their communities about the consequences of alcohol and other drug abuse.
  • Students are learning how alcohol advertising can influence their decisions, and how to make healthy choices.
  • Parents are learning skills to increase family bonding.
  • There is more collaboration among school and community groups.
  • Young people have more opportunities to be involved in positive activities.
  • Students participating in the school-based program Project Success had a 37% decrease in binge drinking, a 44% decrease in marijuana use, and a 28% increase in passing their classes.
Early analysis looking at CPWI sites compared to state average shows positive results.   In 2010, looking at the rate for alcohol were significantly higher than state average in both 8th and 10th grades. In 2012 8th grade rates are no longer significantly different and 10th grade the gap has narrowed.
