Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey (FYSAS)
The Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey is a collaborative effort between the Florida Departments of Health, Education, Children and Families, Juvenile Justice, and the Governor’s Office of Drug Control. It is based on the “Communities That Care” survey, assessing risk and protective factors for substance abuse, in addition to substance abuse prevalence. The survey was first administered to Florida’s middle and high school students during the 1999-2000 school year, and is repeated in the spring of even years.
This survey provides valuable substance use and behavior information specific to St. Johns County middle and high school students.
