Adolescent Substance Abuse Services Needs Assessment Survey

One year ago the Vermont Youth Treatment Enhancement Program (VYTEP) at ADAP sent a "Needs Assessment Survey" to community members and service providers in all regions of Vermont.   We received approximately 600 responses to this survey and generated county level reports based on the responses.

Please follow this link to complete the "2017 Adolescent Substance Abuse Services Needs Assessment Survey" by March 15, 2017.  Please also forward the link on to others in your community who you think can provide feedback on this topic.
