“At OJJDP Experts Address Best Ways To Tackle Issue of Underage Drinking”

Alcohol is the most commonly used and abused drug in the united states, playing a significant role in the United States’ youth homicide, suicide, and violent crime rates. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) Administrator Robert Listenbee encourages officials from both law enforcement agencies and the justice system to form partnerships with local community groups in order to address this issue. Listenbee also said that it is vital that advocacy organizations never think of children as “mini adults”.

Advocates need to have a sharp focus on science-based strategies, emphasizing the most effective, evidence-driven approaches. Click here to read more about what OJJDP experts say are the best ways to tackle the issue of underage drinking.
