The Road to Recovery Presents Binge Drinking and Youth: What Everyone Needs to Know

Results from the 2003 National Survey on Drug Use and Health show that 25 percent of Americans aged 17 had reported binge drinking (i.e., five or more drinks on the same occasion). By age 21, the percentage of binge drinkers had increased to 48 percent. College is clearly a catalyst for alcohol use; in fact, young adults aged 18 to 22 who don't attend college drink less than those who do attend. Many binge drinkers in college begin experimenting with alcohol in high school. Students may not want to think about it, but young people can become alcohol dependent and many will die from excessive alcohol consumption. This program will reveal the subcultures and behaviors that support binge drinking while highlighting prevention, early interventions, and treatment options. Aired 4/6/05.
