1. UNDERAGE DRINKING By Eric F. Phillips Wyoming TSRP

3. The Problem

4. The Problem By the time they reach the eighth grade, nearly 50 percent of adolescents have had at least one drink, and over 20 percent report having been “drunk.”

5. The Problem By the time they reach the eighth grade, nearly 50 percent of adolescents have had at least one drink, and over 20 percent report having been “drunk.” Approximately 20 percent of 8th graders and almost 50 percent of 12th graders have consumed alcohol within the past 30 days.

6. The Problem By the time they reach the eighth grade, nearly 50 percent of adolescents have had at least one drink, and over 20 percent report having been “drunk.” Approximately 20 percent of 8th graders and almost 50 percent of 12th graders have consumed alcohol within the past 30 days. Among 12th graders, almost 30 percent report drinking on 3 or more occasions per month.

7. The Problem By the time they reach the eighth grade, nearly 50 percent of adolescents have had at least one drink, and over 20 percent report having been “drunk.” Approximately 20 percent of 8th graders and almost 50 percent of 12th graders have consumed alcohol within the past 30 days. Among 12th graders, almost 30 percent report drinking on 3 or more occasions per month. Approximately 30 percent of 12th graders engage in heavy episodic drinking, now popularly termed “binge” drinking—that is, having at least five or more drinks on one occasion within the past 2 weeks—and it is estimated that 20 percent do so on more than one occasion.

8. FOUR (4) ISSUES TO DISCUSS

9. FOUR (4) ISSUES TO DISCUSS Injury and Social Consequences

10. FOUR (4) ISSUES TO DISCUSS Injury and Social Consequences Alcohol’s Effects on the Brain

11. FOUR (4) ISSUES TO DISCUSS Injury and Social Consequences Alcohol’s Effects on the Brain The Link Between Early Alcohol Use and Alcohol Dependence

12. FOUR (4) ISSUES TO DISCUSS Injury and Social Consequences Alcohol’s Effects on the Brain The Link Between Early Alcohol Use and Alcohol Dependence Legal Consequences

13. Injury and Social Consequences

14. Injury and Social Consequences Shocking fact!!!

15. Injury and Social Consequences Shocking fact!!! Underage alcohol use is more likely to kill young people than all illegal drugs combined.

16. Drinking and Driving

17. Drinking and Driving Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among youth ages 15 to 20.

18. Drinking and Driving Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among youth ages 15 to 20. Adolescents already are at increased risk through their relative lack of driving experience.

19. Drinking and Driving Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among youth ages 15 to 20. Adolescents already are at increased risk through their relative lack of driving experience. Drivers younger than 21 are more susceptible than older drivers to the alcohol–induced impairment of driving skills.

20. Drinking and Driving Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among youth ages 15 to 20. Adolescents already are at increased risk through their relative lack of driving experience. Drivers younger than 21 are more susceptible than older drivers to the alcohol–induced impairment of driving skills. The rate of fatal crashes among alcohol–involved drivers between 16 and 20 years old is more than twice the rate for alcohol–involved drivers 21 and older.

21. Suicide

22. Suicide Alcohol use interacts with conditions such as depression and stress to contribute to suicide, the third leading cause of death among people between the ages of 14 and 25.

23. Suicide Alcohol use interacts with conditions such as depression and stress to contribute to suicide, the third leading cause of death among people between the ages of 14 and 25. In one study, 37 percent of eighth grade females who drank heavily reported attempting suicide, compared with 11 percent who did not drink.

24. Sexual Assault

25. Sexual Assault Sexual assault, including rape, occurs most commonly among women in late adolescence and early adulthood, usually within the context of a date.

26. Sexual Assault Sexual assault, including rape, occurs most commonly among women in late adolescence and early adulthood, usually within the context of a date. In one survey, approximately 10 percent of female high school students reported having been raped. Research suggests that alcohol use by the offender, the victim, or both, increases the likelihood of sexual assault by a male acquaintance.

27. High–Risk Sex

28. High–Risk Sex Research has associated adolescent alcohol use with high–risk sex (for example, having multiple sexual partners and failing to use protection)

29. High–Risk Sex Research has associated adolescent alcohol use with high–risk sex (for example, having multiple sexual partners and failing to use protection) Consequences of high-risk sex include:

30. High–Risk Sex Research has associated adolescent alcohol use with high–risk sex (for example, having multiple sexual partners and failing to use protection) Consequences of high-risk sex include: Unwanted pregnancy

31. High–Risk Sex Research has associated adolescent alcohol use with high–risk sex (for example, having multiple sexual partners and failing to use protection) Consequences of high-risk sex include: Unwanted pregnancy Sexually transmitted diseases

32. High–Risk Sex Research has associated adolescent alcohol use with high–risk sex (for example, having multiple sexual partners and failing to use protection) Consequences of high-risk sex include: Unwanted pregnancy Sexually transmitted diseases Regrettable sexual activity

33. EFFECTS ON THE BRAIN

34. EFFECTS ON THE BRAIN During adolescence significant changes occur in the body, including rapid hormone alterations and the formation of new networks in the brain.

35. EFFECTS ON THE BRAIN During adolescence significant changes occur in the body, including rapid hormone alterations and the formation of new networks in the brain. New studies show that exposing the brain to alcohol during this period may interrupt key processes of brain development, possibly leading to mild cognitive impairment.

36. THE BROWN STUDY

37. THE BROWN STUDY In the Brown study, researchers discovered that alcohol dependent adolescents had a significantly more difficult time remembering words and simple geometric designs after a 10-minute interval.

38. THE BROWN STUDY In the Brown study, researchers discovered that alcohol dependent adolescents had a significantly more difficult time remembering words and simple geometric designs after a 10-minute interval. These tests were done while the subjects were not under the influence of alcohol.

39. BIOLOGY OF THE BRAIN

40. BIOLOGY OF THE BRAIN Memory impairment has been found in adult rats exposed to alcohol during adolescence.

41. BIOLOGY OF THE BRAIN Memory impairment has been found in adult rats exposed to alcohol during adolescence. In addition, sophisticated imaging techniques revealed structural differences in the brains of 17–year–olds. The hippocampus—a part of the brain important for learning and memory—was smaller in alcohol–dependent study participants than it was in nondependent participants (24).

In addition, sophisticated imaging techniques revealed structural differences in the brains of 17–year–olds. The hippocampus—a part of the brain important for learning and memory—was smaller in alcohol–dependent study participants than it was in nondependent participants (24). Alcohol consumption among minors interferes with academic and occupational success.

43. Permanent Brain Damage

44. Permanent Brain Damage Studies have shown that the damage done to an adolescent’s brain by consuming alcohol can be permanent.

45. The Link Between Early Alcohol Use and Alcohol Dependence Legal Consequences

46. The Link Between Early Alcohol Use and Alcohol Dependence Legal Consequences People who begin drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop alcohol dependence at some time in their lives compared with those who have their first drink at age 20 or older.

47. The Link Between Early Alcohol Use and Alcohol Dependence Legal Consequences People who begin drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop alcohol dependence at some time in their lives compared with those who have their first drink at age 20 or older. both early drinking and alcoholism have been linked to personality characteristics such as reckless behavior and impulsive activity.
