"The brain goes through dynamic change during adolescence [ages 12-21] and alcohol can seriously damage long- and short-term growth processes." (American Medical Association Fact Sheet, 2003)

In today’s mood altering climate alcohol and other drugs are often combined in an effort to get higher and higher.

If you have to ask yourself, "Should I drive?"  It is probably best to have a sober person take you home.  In Atlanta & Tampa call SafeRide.. brings you and your car home safely.  Other cities may have similar programs.

NEVER DRIVE IMPAIRED... A DUI (driving under the influence) may be the least of your worries and problems especially if you permanently injure yourself or someone else.
