The following outcomes are targets measured through the Tobacco and Substance Use Prevention program to be achieved by 2021, not as a percent decrease from the current rate. These are the long-term outcomes that help our state become a healthier Maine. The data sources for most of these outcomes* are two of Maine’s surveillance instruments (BRFSS and MIYHS). Tobacco outcomes are in alignment with, but further, the goals set through Healthy Maine 2020. Alcohol, marijuana and prescription drug abuse results are in alignment with the goals set in the Partnership for Success grant maintained by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services (SAMHS).
