Six State Consortium
In 1993, Maine - along with 5 other states (Washington, Utah, Oregon, Colorado, Kansas and South Carolina) - began a prevention needs assessment project called the Six State Consortium. The Social Development Research Group (SDRG) at the University of Washington served as technical consultants for the six-state federal contract. The project was funded by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The project had three components: School Surveys, Archival Data Collection, and a Household Telephone Survey.
The results of this project are presented in Substance Abuse Prevention Maine's 1997 Data Report (PDF). (The free Adobe Acrobat Reader is necessary to view this PDF document. Printouts of this document are available upon request.)
