Will you help to change the statistics?
The median age at which children begin drinking is 12 (NIDA, 2002). Young people who begin drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop alcohol dependence than those who begin drinking at age 21.
Safe Homes, Smart Parties is a statewide initiative developed by Informed Families and implemented by parents of teens and preteens to ensure that drugs, alcohol and cigarettes will not be permitted at parties held in their homes and discouraged at parties in the community.
