Alcohol + Pot are the Drugs of Choice among Teens. Chances are your Teen is All-Too Aware of the Presence in Their World.

Are You? 

Over 50% of American youth, ages 12 to 20, have tried alcohol, with the first drink at 13 for girls and 11 for boys. The average age for smoking pot is 16 but up to 16% of eighth graders have admitted that they started in middle school.

Underage drinking - especially before age 15 - increases the risk for many alcohol and drug-related problems.

Problems include:
● increased risk-taking including driving or riding with someone under the influence
● withdrawal and isolation
● poor grades
● increased depression or anxiety
● exhibiting inappropriate, aggressive, even abusive behavior
● being a victim of a violent crime
● becoming involved in criminal acts
● engaging in unprotected sex
● sexual assault
● suicide attempts

The Risks are Real

As a parent, you know the importance of talking to your teen about alcohol and substance abuse. It should be as easy as talking about sex or healthy habits.
The reality, though, is that most parents are not talking about drinking and drugs, and that must change.
No longer is it an option to think that your child won’t be affected. And, these numbers are increasing…the numbers are scary because it is no longer a matter of IF your child is exposed to alcohol but WHEN.
