    Wisconsin rates as one of the top states for the percentage of underage drinking and binge drinking among 12 to 20 year olds.

    The good news is that underage drinking has declined nationwide in the past few years.  However, it continues to contribute to poor academic performance, teen violence, drunk driving and other risky behaviors among our youth.

    DID YOU KNOW?
    Portage County reports one of the highest levels of teen alcohol use and abuse in our state.

    Young people who start drinking before the age of 15 are five times more likely to have alcohol problems later in life than those who begin drinking at age 21 or older.

    We can start talking with children about the consequences of underage alcohol use before they start drinking. Red Ribbon Week is a great time to do this!
