Synopsis

Many adults who are concerned about the drug problem among teenagers turn a blind eye when kids drink beer and other alcohol. "Alcohol Is a Drug, Too "exposes the myths adults use to rationalize drinking by adolescents and presents the facts about dangers both teenagers and communities face when teenage drinking goes on unchecked. "Alcohol Is a Drug, Too "examines these myths: -Alcohol isn't really a drug - at least it's not as bad as crack/cocaine, LSD, marijuana, etc.-Kids can't become addicted if they stick to beer and wine coolers.-Alcohol use by teenagers isn't a problem if they just promise not to drink and drive.-Kids who are allowed to drink at home won't drink when they're away.-Adults can't do anything about peer pressure. Through research data and engaging vignettes, the author presents a wide scope of information about underage alcohol use and parental permissiveness. He then offers strategic solutions parents, schools and communities can embrace and act upon to address underage drinking and its dangerous consequences.
