Dear Mr. Respondent:

While a great deal of attention has been paid in recent years to the harmful effects of illegal drugs on our community and its' citizens' health, less discussion has taken place about the impact of legal substances like tobacco, alcohol, and prescription drugs on the citizens of West Davisville. To get an idea of what our city's residents' habits and opinions are with regard to these substances, the West Davisville Community Access Project has designed a questionnaire which is being sent to a randomly-selected sample of 2,500 city residents of all ages and backgrounds. The results of this survey will be used to decide whether a significant problem exists in our community with regard to these types of substances and what, if any, sort of action should be taken.

Enclosed with this letter you'll find a copy of the questionnaire along with instructions on how to complete it and a postage paid envelope to send it back in. The questionnaire takes about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Please take a few minutes to complete this questionnaire and send it back to us; all responses are confidential, and while there is some demographic information on the questionnaire to help us identify any particular groups that need specific services, your responses are completely anonymous.

Getting a realistic picture of the impact that alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs are having on our community will help the West Davisville Community Access Project know what sort of services we can implement to better serve our city. Thank you for being part of making West Davisville a healthier place for our children and ourselves.
