College Drinking - Underage, Too Much, and Dangerous

What can I do if my son has a drinking problem in college? Unfortunately, binge drinking is very common in most colleges. Not only that, but much of the dangerous drinking is actually underage. At many college parties, including frat and sorority parties, alcohol is very easy to gain access to, even for young people who can’t legally drink. And even for the ones who can legally drink, college represents a time when many young people end up drinking too much. And that can lead to sever consequence, such as health problems, failing grades, or even accidental death. Click here to learn more about how substance abuse needs to be dealt with at college.

Binge-Drinking on College Campuses

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, “college drinking is extremely widespread.” Almost all students drink—the numbers are around 4 out of 5 college students who have done any drinking in their college years. And of that 80%, over half have done drinking that qualifies as “binge drinking.” And this excessive drinking of alcohol leads to consequences. 25% of all students report having problems with their grades or academic careers because of drinking. And alcohol is usually a factor in violence and assault, accidents, date rape and sexual abuse, and even suicide attempts. Click here to learn more about college drinking.
