Adolescent DUI Trends

by James Heller 15. June 2009 14:55
With summer here, parents need to be extra vigilant when it comes to their teens staying safe on the roads.  Adolescent alcohol abuse and drug abuse results in driving under the influence more often than parents may realize.  In the past 2 weeks, according to surveys, about 1 in 3 teens have either driven under the influence or been in a vehicle where the driver was impaired.

Parents can’t keep an eye on adolescents every minute of the day.  So the most effective thing they can do is get educated the best they can, and teach their children to be wise.  It seems too simple, but a seed may be planted that could grow to save a life.  Although teens typically seek independence, what they hear at home may have an impact and sway them away from being in a DUI situation.

Because there is more free time and less supervision, teen alcohol abuse rises in the summertime along with experimentation with drug abuse.  At the first sign of trouble, parents should begin looking into teen alcohol and drug treatment.  This is because, in most cases, when parents become aware that alcohol or drugs are being abused by their children it is not the first time it has occurred.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides youth alcohol and drug treatment.  We have adolescent treatment tracks to fit each patient since teen alcohol and drug use varies from occasional binging to daily use.  We offer staff-administered drug testing, and medical detoxification is available for severe cases of alcohol, heroin, and prescription drug dependence.

The paragraph below is from an article on the National Institute on Drug Abuse website.  It focuses on teen DUI trends as they were reported by Monitoring the Future.  Parents who want more information may follow the Source link and read the full article.

Researchers looked at data from six annual Monitoring the Future surveys—2001 to 2006—each of which asked approximately 2,500 high school seniors whether they had, in the 2 weeks prior to the survey, driven after drinking alcohol or using an illicit drug or ridden with a driver who had. Although the prevalence of alcohol- or drug-impaired driving and riding has declined over the 6 years, from 35 percent in 2001 to 30 percent in 2006, the problem remains serious and widespread, the study authors say.
