Overview

The Gallup Youth Survey has found that more than 80 percent of high school seniors have tried alcohol and that roughly a quarter of teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 say it is very easy for them to get alcoholic beverages. Alcohol is a contributor to the three leading causes of death for teens and young adults: automobile crashes, homicides, and suicides. This volume explores several issues facing young people, including binge drinking and cross-addiction.
