So, what's the problem with underage drinking?
Alcohol is the number one drug of choice for America's teens -- used more than any other illicit drugs. According to a 2010 report by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), almost three out of every four high school students (72%) have consumed alcohol (more than just a few sips) by the end of their senior year. And, from 8th grade to 10th grade, the number of students who drank alcohol in the last month nearly doubled.
For the first time, high school administrators and teachers can combat underage drinking with an online alcohol prevention program designed specifically for today's youth. AlcoholEdu® for High School helps high school students contend with a culture that too often encourages, rather than discourages, underage drinking.
