REMINDER: May 20th, 2012 – May 26th, 2012 is National Substance Abuse Prevention Week. Parents, talk to your teens about underage drinking. Alcohol kills more teens every year than all illegal drugs combined. Drinking is illegal for anyone under the age of 21. Teens who drink are at high-risk for engaging in behaviors that lead to negative consequences, including injuries and even death.
