Report an Underage Drinking Party

Underage drinking is a major issue in our community. Alcohol is the number one drug used by our youth, more so than tobacco and illicit drugs. Underage drinking is responsible for over 4700 youth deaths annually.

A popular trend amongst underage drinkers is 'binge drinking.' Studies show that in 2010, approximately 189,000 emergency room visits occurred that involved the over-consumption of alcohol amongst underage drinkers. To many, alcohol has been glamorized and popularized in today's society. It is up to all of us to help influence today's youths in understanding that alcohol has real and long lasting effects, both physically, mentally, and emotionally.
