Alcohol remains the substance most widely used by today’s teenagers. Despite recent declines in use, seven out of every ten students (68 percent) have consumed alcohol (more than just a few sips) by the end of high school, and three out of ten (28 percent) have done so by eighth grade. With growing evidence of the poor long-term health outcomes for individuals who engage in significant alcohol use during adolescents, this remains a significant public health issue. In many communities, health centers play a key role in the health care of adolescents.

Join this webinar for a deeper look into how health centers can assist in curbing adolescent alcohol use. Learn both practical and research-based information on how to implement alcohol prevention and treatment services for adolescents and how to keep them engaged.
