The results from this year’s Pride Survey are in.
Los Alamos middle and high school students drink less than the national average, but are right on par with drug use in schools around the country.
The survey, designated an official measurement of adolescent drug and alcohol use in America by the federal government in 1998, is administered annually to Los Alamos students to help school and community organizations develop strategies to help troubled students get back on track.
“What we’re doing is getting intervention and help for students and their families at a lower threshold before they get way out of whack,” said youth advocate Morris Pongratz.
Traditionally, the survey has asked students questions related to the frequency of their alcohol and drug use, but recent versions of the study now measure behavior on crucial issues that affect learning, like relationships with family, self-discipline, involvement in extra-curricular activities and tobacco use.
According to this year’s survey, a significant finding among both middle and high school students in Los Alamos shows that students who live in single-parent households drink alcohol at triple the rate of those students who live with both parents.
