Facts from the video "This Place"

How widespread are alcohol problems among youth?

Alcohol use by children, adolescents, and young adults under the legal drinking age of 21 produces human tragedies with alarming regularity.

How do we begin to address this issue?

Youth access and underage drinking needs to be addressed as a national public health issue. Similar public health efforts such as the reduction and cessation of tobacco use, the use of seatbelts, and reducing drinking and driving have focused on contributing factors and conditions. Youth access and underage drinking needs to be addressed using the same process.
