Tweens, Teens and Young Adults Benefit from Alcohol Drug Awarness Copyright Tom Wilson Counseling Center  Educating your tweens and teens on the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse won't solve all your problems as a parent but it may help your kids better understand the consequences of their decisions if it comes from another source, such as an online alcohol drug awareness class. Binge drinking seems to be at surprisingly high levels these days and is the most common pattern among underage drinkers.  Binge drinking among teens and young adults is defined as 5 or more drinks on the same occasion at least once in the past 30 days.  Health, social and academic problems occur when young men drink 5 or more drinks per occasion and young women drink 4 or more drinks per occasion.  Those numbers are even more shocking when you consider college aged young adults from 18 to 25 where the rate of binge drinking in 2010 was almost 41% according to the 2010 National Survey on Drug Huse and Heal…

Rates of current, binge, and heavy alcohol use among underage persons declined between 2002 and 2010. The rate of current alcohol use among 12 to 20 year olds went from 28.8 percent in 2002 to 26.3 percent in 2010. The binge drinking rate went from 19.3 to 17.0 percent, and the rate of heavy drinking went from 6.2 to 5.1 percent.
