At least 27 percent of Suisun-Fairfield Unified School District’s seventh graders reported having access to alcohol during the 2013-2014 school year.
That’s just one of several statistics from the California Healthy Kids Survey that inspired Suisun City’s Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Prevention Coalition (ATOD) to host public workshops on teen alcohol access.
“We’re hoping to educate the community with the data,” said Cathy Rader, ATOD coordinator.
The workshops will focus on the impacts of addictive substances and how teens are getting their hands on alcohol, Rader said.
