Statewide school surveys are conducted biennially by the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Division, which replaced legacy agency Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (TCADA) in 2004. Since the project began in 1988, 64 percent of the school districts in Texas have participated and about 2.4 million students have filled out survey forms. The survey covers not only prevalence of substance use, but also other factors affecting youth substance use and the students' attitudes toward substance use.
