AlcoholAwarenessImage

Each April since 1987, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) sponsors Alcohol Awareness Month to highlight the important health issue of underage drinking,  increase public awareness, and encourage local communities to focus on alcohol-related issues.

ILCAAAP’s Alcohol Awareness Brochure

        Alcohol use by young people is extremely dangerous—both to themselves and to society, and is directly associated with traffic fatalities, violence, suicide, educational failure, alcohol overdose, unsafe sex, and other problem behaviors.  Over 4,300 people under the age of 21 die from alcohol-related accidents and thousands more are injured each year.

  • Alcohol is the number one drug of choice for America’s youth, and is more likely to kill young people than all illegal drugs combined.
  • Those who drink before the age of 15 are four times more likely to develop alcoholism than those who begin at age 21.
  • More than 1,700 college students in the U. S. are killed each year—about 4.65 a day—as a result of alcohol-related injuries.
  • Underage alcohol use costs the nation an estimated $62 million each year._____________________________
