Save the Date: SAMHSA’s Communities Talk to Prevent Underage Drinking Initiative

SAMHSA’s eighth round of its Communities Talk to Prevent Underage Drinking initiative is set to launch in January 2021. Focusing on preventing alcohol misuse remains important because among Americans under age 21, alcohol is the most frequently used substance, used more often than tobacco, marijuana, or other illicit drugs. And while underage alcohol use rates have steadily declined since 2002, 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health Data show past month underage drinking rates remained unchanged from 2018 to 2019.
