The dangers of early alcohol use are clear. What may be less clear is how to begin to prevent it. This guide is a starting point for people like you--parents, teachers, health professionals, law enforcement personnel, alcohol retailers, policymakers, and others who are concerned with the well-being of children. It describes three basic prevention strategies and ways they can be applied in the home, the school, and the community, and offers effective, practical strategies for communities that have decided to take action to prevent underage drinking, especially among children and young adolescents.
These strategies may lead to such changes as revised zoning laws, new policies or legislation, better enforcement of existing laws, and establishment of school policies on alcohol use. To help you better understand how to put these strategies into action, the guide also includes real-life examples of efforts by people around the country to prevent drinking by 9- to 15-yearolds. Although the strategies may be adapted in different ways by different communities, their science base ensures that no matter what the location, from rural farming areas, to suburban school districts, to inner-city neighborhoods, these strategies work.
