SAMHSA Releases Report on Underage Drinking

July 23, 2015

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has released a new report showing a significant decline in underage alcohol consumption among youth aged 12 to 20 between 2002 and 2013. The report indicates a drop in underage binge drinking but finds alcohol to still be the most widely used substance among America's youth.
