Alcohol is the drug most commonly used and abused by adolescents. It is responsible
for the 3 major causes of death in this age group: motor vehicle accidents, unintentional
injuries, and homicide. In fact, postmortem studies show that in 45% to 50% of violent
deaths involving adolescents, alcohol had been consumed by both victims and perpetrators.
