What are the dangerous effects of alcohol use in teens?


Just a few of the many dangerous effects of alcohol use in teens include the following:

·         Alcohol decreases teens' ability to pay attention.

·         Teens who have experienced alcohol withdrawal tend to have difficulties with memory.

·         In contrast to adults, teens tend to abuse alcohol with other substances, usually marijuana.

·         Male teens who drink heavily tend to complete fewer years of education compared to male teens who do not.

·         The younger a person is when they begin drinking, the more likely they are to develop a problem with alcohol.
