The nice thing of this study is that it highlights an imminent public health concern: the lack of health care access among growing population segments that are at-risk for severe substance use problems.

This adult drinking- teen drinking became very common and will continue, but taking an active interest in your teen's life will help reduce the problem. There is no doubt- alcohol is by far the most abused drug among teenagers. Because the body changes so much as we grow, the ability both to judge and cope with alcohol changes all the time.
Everyone seems to know of someone who can drink booze by the bucket-load but this shouldn't be seen as something to aspire towards. Teens are the most likely group to have their stomachs pumped after excessive alcohol intake. At the end of the day it has to be remembered that alcohol is a toxin.
