Underage drinking is a prevalent issue among teens, with significant consequences for their health, well-being, and future. According to studies, a substantial proportion of teens have consumed alcohol in their lifetime, with some engaging in binge drinking.
Underage drinking increases the risk of alcohol use disorder later in life and is associated with various health complications, including alcohol poisoning, injuries, impaired brain development, and increased suicide risk.
Moreover, underage drinking can lead to poor academic performance, risky behaviors, and legal problems. The prevalence of underage drinking and the severity of the long-term consequences among teens highlight the urgency of addressing underage drinking through effective prevention and early intervention strategies.
