TAKE THE PLEDGE
I pledge to do the following:
Do not allow underage youth to drink alcoholic beverages or use tobacco or other drugs in our home or place of business
Be present at all pre-teen and teenage parties held in their homes to ensure that no drugs, alcohol or tobacco are present
Encourage future drug and alcohol free activities for underage youth
Spread the message to family and friends
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?
