Durham Together for Resilient Youth (TRY)

Substance use is a dynamic problem that impacts a community in a multitude of ways. In an effort to understand how substance use affects Durham, this project assembled information from a variety of local health and social service agencies. The report prepared by Center researchers documented information on geospatial and time trends, on types of substances being used, and the demographic characteristics of those inflicted. By assembling the available information, the hope was that community partners who are working to prevent and address substance use can better target resources to the current and emerging needs of the residents.
