Summary

Eighty-seven percent of high school seniors have tried alcohol and, according to a Gallup Youth Survey, 27 percent of teenagers say it is very easy for them to get alcoholic beverages. Alcohol is a contributor to the three leading causes of death for teens and young adults: automobile crashes, homicides, and suicides. This volume will explore several issues facing young people, including binge drinking and cross-addiction. Book jacket.
