Alcohol and the Teen Brain…

Scientists once thought that the brain was fully developed by the time that a person
is in their teens.  We now know that the human brain is still developing into the early
twenties.  Some scientists are even saying as late as 25 years old.  Alcohol use or
abuse during adolescence can lead to permanent damage to the I
earning and memory areas of the brain.

What can I do?

Joining Citizens Against Substance Abuse of Woodford County is
a great way to help your community prevent teens from
abusing alcohol.
