Reducing Underage Drinking: A Collective


Alcohol use by young people is extremely dangerous ? both to themselves

and society at large. Underage alcohol use is associated with traffic

fatalities, violence, unsafe sex, suicide, educational failure, and other

problem behaviors that diminish the prospects of future success, as well

as health risks ? and the earlier teens start drinking, the greater the

danger. Despite these serious concerns, the media continues to make

drinking look attractive to youth, and it remains possible and even easy

for teenagers to get access to alcohol.

Why is this dangerous behavior so pervasive? What can be done to prevent

it? What will work and who is responsible for making sure it happens?

Reducing Underage Drinking addresses these questions and proposes a new

way to combat underage alcohol use. It explores the ways in which many

different individuals and groups contribute to the problem and how they

can be enlisted to prevent it. Reducing Underage Drinking will serve as

both a game plan and a call to arms for anyone with an investment in youth

health and safety.
