Houston is the nation's fourth largest city. During 2006, 203 people were killed in alcohol-related traffic crashes in Harris County. Of those, 147 people were killed in drunk driving crashes involving a driver with a blood or breath alcohol concentration of .08% or higher. The likelihood a person in the Houston area will lose his or her life to a drunk driver is more than 4 times greater than in Austin, almost 3 times greater than in San Antonio and more than 1.5 times greater than in Dallas. The percentage of crashes which are alcohol-related in Texas (45%) is far above the national average (39%). Narconon Arrowhead is aware of this problem and has a program that handles all aspects of alcohol addiction with a success rate of over 70%.
Alcohol lowers a person's inhibitions and ability to make correct judgments. It also causes a loss in motor control skills in an individual. The most common age group for driving after alcohol consumption is those aged 21-34. This shows a dire need for alcohol education for our youth to prevent them from drinking and/or getting behind the wheel if having been drinking.
Some things parents can do to prevent their children from drinking are give your children an answer for a way out when offered a drink, i.e. I am trying out for the baseball team and need to stay in shape. Also establish a strong communication line with your children. Be the person they can come to with a problem rather than reacting and help them figure out a solution to that problem. You want to be open and honest when speaking with your children about alcohol addiction and communicate with them on a level which they can understand is the best way to help. This is of the utmost importance because younger individuals who try alcohol are more likely to experiment with drugs.
Having Houston youth educated on the dangers and consequences of alcohol and drinking and driving will allow them to achieve their goals and dreams. Narconon Arrowhead wants to make sure the youth of Houston have every opportunity to prosper as they become young adults working in the community. This is why Narconon Arrowhead has our drug educational specialist travel to Houston and speak with the youth in Houston schools about the dangers and realities of alcohol abuse. The best defense against any addiction is knowledge. This is where Narconon Arrowhead steps in.
