Drug/Alcohol Prevention Information

Questions we think, but don't ask....

Why is it important to wait until the age of 21 to drink?


1. It is against the law to drink prior to age 21

2. The brain is not fully developed until your mid-20’s. Starting to drink alcohol at a young age can hinder the development of the brain’s structure and functioning.

3. Early drinking is a risk factor for alcohol use disorders.

4. Adults who had taken their first drink of alcohol before the age of 15 were 6.5 times more likely to experience an alcohol use disorder than those who didn’t start drinking before age 21. (SAMHSA, 2017 NSDUH).
