Young people’s drinking: health harms and NHS burden

TP alcoholThis set of papers ‘Thinking Prevention’ will help those involved in drug and alcohol education and prevention to set out a clear public health case for their work.

Key Messages:

  • Young people’s drinking carries immediate risks to their health: underage drinkers are significant users of A&E and ambulance services
  • Starting drinking at a young age also increases the risk of alcohol dependency or abuse in later life.
  • Youth drinking has fallen recently, but chronic alcohol harms are becoming more common among under-30s.
  • Alcohol prevention programmes in the classroom can help young people think about their attitudes towards alcohol, develop social skills and challenge misperceptions about peer norms.
  • Parents’ attitudes to alcohol and strong family relationships are important in protecting young people.
