6 Overview Alcohol has the highest prevalence of use of any substance in Hillsborough County and throughout the nation. Alcohol has the highest prevalence of use of any substance in Hillsborough County and throughout the nation. In 2012, Hillsborough County ranked second among all counties in alcohol-related fatalities. Hillsborough County DUI arrests increased in 2014; Hillsborough has more DUI arrests than any other Florida county. To address these concerns, the Hillsborough County Anti-Drug Alliance (HCADA) and the Tampa Alcohol Coalition (TAC) have continued to support: DUI law enforcement operations, The Hillsborough County Sheriff s Alcohol Vendor Enforcement program (SAVE), DUI Counterattack, media coverage, alcohol awareness programs, improved alcohol policies and community coalitions collaborative efforts to reduce impaired driving and crashes, including the Community Traffic Safety Team (CTST) and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). Alcohol is the most commonly abused drug used among Hillsborough County Students with 43.8% of youth reporting using alcohol at least once in their life, higher than both the regional average of 43.0% and the statewide average of 42.6% (FYSAS 2014). In 2014, the overall 20.3% past 30-day rates of alcohol use break down to 8.9% in middle school and 29.3% in high school. Of those who do drink, both middle and high school trends in binge drinking have dropped in 2014, however Hillsborough County high school binge drinking rates are still above the State average. Additionally, the high school rate for blacking out from drinking is at 20.2%. After alcohol, students reported marijuana (25.0% lifetime and 12.8% past-30-day use) as the second most commonly used drug. Past-30-day use of marijuana increased slightly since 2012 (12.1% to 12.8%). Although marijuana is just slightly higher than the Florida statewide average, recent movement toward legalization is changing perceptions as youth report less risk of harm. After alcohol and marijuana, cigarettes, (14.9% lifetime and 3.7% past- 30-day), make up the third most commonly used drug. For other ATOD categories among Hillsborough County youth, past-30-day prevalence ranges from 3.0% for inhalants and prescriptions pain relievers to 0.2% for heroin and steroids. Thanks to a concerted community effort coupled with increased prevention strategies we are seeing a decrease in reported lifetime and past-30-day use of all substances, with the exception of marijuana, for the 2014 survey year (FYSAS). Our community must remain proactive to ensure we continue to see a decline in these behaviors and that the 2014 data is not an anomaly. The Coalition must also remain vigilant to upcoming trends in drug use among our youth. National Poison Control Center data from calls in 2012 indicate that poisonings from bath salts, synthetic marijuana and laundry detergent pods are emerging threats to public health. National Poison Control Center data from 2012, (released December 24, 2014), show that poisonings from prescription drugs are the leading cause of injury death in the United States. Although prescription drug abuse is not in the top three substances of abuse among Hillsborough County youth, it is of concern since in Hillsborough County alone we lost 143 persons to prescription drug overdose in 2013 (down from previous two years, but still too high). Past-30-day prescription pain reliever use was reported at 3.0%, compared to 2.3% across the statewide survey. If we reach the youth now with strong prevention efforts and make the necessary environmental changes, they will be less likely to start when they reach 18-36, which is the age group most prevalent in reported drug overdoses. Hillsborough County data also guides us to keep watch on inhalant use. Among middle school students, 3.6% reported the use of inhalants in the past 30 days, a rate higher than any other illicit drug (except marijuana) for this population. Also of concern is the recent popularity of e-cigarettes and vapor pens, which are not only used as a delivery system for nicotine, but also for marijuana and synthetics as well. In the Florida Youth Tobacco Survey, Hillsborough County youth report more use of e-cigarettes. 6 t Profile of Alcohol and Drug Indicators t June 2015

10 Overview Area Description Hillsborough County is composed of the cities of Tampa, Temple Terrace, and Plant City plus 47 other unincorporated areas. The County covers over 1,200 square miles, including 215 miles of coastline. According to the 2010 census estimate, the population was 1,229,226 with 75.8% White, 17.6% Black, 3.6% Asian,.6% other races, and 2.3% multiracial. Census 2010 figures also indicate that over one fourth (25.1%) of Hillsborough s population report being of Hispanic or Latino origin, the slight majority (51%) are female, 11.9% of the population are 65 years old or older, and 15% live below the poverty level. Hillsborough County is the fourth most populated county in Florida and accounts for over 6% of the State s total population. Hillsborough County Alcohol and Drug Indicator Analysis Indicator reporting programs are a useful means of gauging the extent of local alcohol and drug use and their related problems. Additionally, collecting indicator data over time will help to ascertain the impact of efforts designed to reduce alcohol and drug use and its related problems. Indicators can be used by community leaders in the following ways (1) to identify the most important local substance use problems, (2) to target community prevention and treatment strategies, and (3) to evaluate the results of new policies and programs. To this end, the Hillsborough County Anti Drug Alliance worked with University of South Florida FMHI researchers to conduct an evaluation of indicators available throughout Hillsborough County relevant to alcohol and drug use among both adolescents and adults. Some of the local data was compared to other counties with similar sized populations in metropolitan areas (Pinellas and Orange). Other data was compared to state averages. 10 t Profile of Alcohol and Drug Indicators t June 2015 The Indicator Report will be used to help evaluate the effectiveness of existing substance abuse prevention and treatment programs, alcohol and narcotic law enforcement, substance abuse awareness activities and alcohol and other drug policies, to determine the need for new programs and policies, and to help secure future funding.
