Did You Know That Teens Are Dying from Binge Drinking?
Nearly 5,000 young people die each year from poisoning due to alcohol consumption.
The median age at which children begin drinking is 12 (NIDA, 2002). Young people who begin drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop alcohol dependence than those who begin drinking at age 21. Will you help to change these statistics?
