Prevent Teen Drinking - Get Involved

Why HEARTS is concerned with the early onset of underage drinking

According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, using alcohol and drugs before the brain has fully developed increases the risk for future addiction to alcohol and drugs dramatically. Young people who start drinking alcohol before age 15 are 5 times more likely to develop alcohol abuse or dependence than people who first used alcohol at age 21 or older. Research for drug use and drug addiction have found similar results.
