Chester County Inhalant Use Higher Than National Average

From Kennett Paper in Pennsylvania:

The Chester County Council on Addictive Diseases (COAD) presented the results of the Pennsylvania Youth Survey (PAYS) to the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District administration. The presentation was held as a “Communities That Care” meeting.

The survey includes data from students in sixth, eighth, tenth and twelfth grades and revealed that in the past 30 days, “1.5% of seniors had used inhalants, versus 1.7 statewide and 1.2 nationally.”
