There is growing concern about alcohol abuse and general usage by young teens in the United States, and a number of federal organizations have begun to address this issue in earnest. This website is an important component of these outreach efforts, and was created by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). The content of the site is based on a curriculum for grades six through eight developed at the University of Michigan, and much of the material will be of interest to young people, parents, and professionals who work with young people on such issues. Some of the features of the site include a "Reality Check" that quizzes young people about how much drinking goes on in the US and another section that discusses how peers may try to tempt other young people into drinking. Finally, the site is rounded out by a selection of external resources that may be of assistance to persons with a drinking problem, or for those with a family member who is having a problem with drinking.
