Underage Drinking Facts:
Youth who start drinking before age 15 are six times more likely to develop alcohol dependence or abuse later in life than those who begin drinking at or after age 21. (SAMHSA 2013)
Data collected by Behavioral Health Services/ NCADD in 2012, showed that 68% of 55 Manhattan Beach youth surveyed aged 12-17 reported accessing alcohol at a party.
