Alcohol Youth Prevention

1 in 3 Solano County 11th Graders Drank Alcohol in the Past Month

Alcohol is the most widely abused substance among America’s youth, and underage drinking poses immense health and safety risks. Young people ages 12 through 20 drink 11% of all alcohol consumed in the United States and consume more than 90% of their alcohol by binge drinking. Underage drinking can cause youth to have problems in school or with the law, and increases the chance of abusing other substances. Parents can help by talking about the dangers of underage drinking with their teens and other parents.
