AlcoholEdu® for High School
For the first time, high school administrators and teachers can prevent underage drinking with an evidence-based online Population-Level Prevention program.
- Alcohol is the number one drug of choice for America's teens -- and kills more teens than all other illicit drugs combined.
- 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.
- Each year, alcohol abuse costs the United States an estimated $185 billion, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA).
