<div> <div>Substance abuse is a completely preventable health issue, affecting about one in 15 Americans. It affects not only the individual using drugs or alcohol, but also their family and community. It has been linked to a host of other problems including increased rates of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections/diseases , domestic violence and child abuse, car crashes, crime and homicide, and suicide. In addition, youth who drink alcohol are more likely to have teenage pregnancies, have poor or failing grades in school, and be physically or sexually assaulted. Programs and systems that help prevent or treat substance abuse protect the health, safety and quality of life for all Coloradans, especially our children.</div> </div>
