Youth Vaping Prevention Resources

The Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services Office of Drug and Alcohol utilizes the PA Youth Survey to identify trends and areas of need in the community. A recent trend among youth, as seen on the survey and identified by Montgomery County School Districts, is students using vaping devices in school. 

To address this growing concern, the Office of Drug and Alcohol released a Vaping Toolkit for schools, parents, educators, and health care providers in October of 2018 which was revised in August 2020 and available for download below. In addition to the Vaping Toolkit, the Office of Drug & Alcohol has compiled a comprehensive list of anti-vaping resources to support youth, parents, and professionals in Montgomery County. This guide can be downloaded and is available with the other resources listed below.
