Reducing Risky Choices in Youth


Did you know that nine out of ten addictions start in a person’s teen years? The average age that a youth starts using substances or alcohol is 13 years old. Now, keep in mind that young people’s brains are not fully developed until age 25. During those developmental years, the use of non-prescribed drugs or alcohol can be very destructive to young brains – and can interrupt the brain’s development. This video details the effects of early addition, why it happens, and how to prevent it from happening.
