Society treats drinking alcohol as a social activity. Some adults have a drink to unwind after a busy day. Many kids are influenced by this behavior and the alcohol advertisements around them, making them feel they need alcohol to enjoy themselves. However, study after study has shown alcohol and the teenage brain do not mix.
Many coalitions focus on the difficult but attainable goal of reducing rates of underage drinking in their communities. Much of their work is based on science and local data.
