Teens and Alcohol (Hot Topics) (Library Binding)
According to the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, approximately 7.7 million Americans between the ages of 12 and 20 admit to consuming alcohol. However, overall rates of past month consumption, binge drinking, and heavy alcohol use have declined significantly between 2006 and 2015. This compelling resource offers a comprehensive and balanced discussion of teen alcohol consumption. The book takes a critical look at the many reasons teens drink, the history of drinking age laws, the emergence of hosting laws, and the punishment of parents who supply alcohol to their teenager.
