These sobering statistics show how alcohol affects the world of a child they are from

Alcohol is the #1 drug of choice among our Nation’s youth.1

Research indicates that adolescents who abuse alcohol may remember 10% less of what they have learned than those who don’t drink. 2

In SAMHSA’s 2003 National Survey on Drug Use & Health, persons reporting first use of alcohol before age 15 were more than 5 times as likely to report past year alcohol dependence or abuse than persons who first used alcohol at age 21 or older (16% vs. 3%). 3

Almost 20% of 8th-graders, and 42% of 10th-graders have been drunk at least once.

More than 11% of 8th-graders, 22% of 10th-graders, and 29% of 12th-graders report binge drinking (five drinks in a row in the last two weeks).
