Between 2000 and 2005, there was a 50% increase in the percentage of people (aged 12 or older) reporting dependence on or abuse of alcohol – a problem that now affects one in ten Arizonans. This trend of youth starting to drink at a young age sets a pattern for the rest of their lives as shown in the 516 juveniles AND 34,859 adults arrested for DUI. If the adults had been given effective alcohol education in their youth this statistic could have been dramatically decreased. This is where Narconon Arrowhead is a leader. Not only does Narconon Arrowhead educate our youth about the dangers of alcohol but also provides rehabilitation services for alcohol and drug addiction with a 70% success rate for those already caught in the devastating downward spiral of either alcohol or drug addiction.
Phoenix's youth need to be aware that alcohol lowers a person's inhibitions and ability to make correct judgments along with the fact that motor skills in an individual decrease once one has consumed alcohol. The most common age group for driving after alcohol consumption are 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.
There are many things parents can do to prevent their children from drinking. One example is to drill questions with your son or daughter that they are likely to be asked concerning alcohol or drugs until they are able to answer without hesitation and with confidence. Give your children an answer for a way out when offered a drink, i.e. I am trying out for the baseball/volleyball team and need to stay in shape. 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. Listen instead of judging. This is of the utmost importance because younger individuals who try alcohol are more likely to experiment with drugs.
Having Phoenix youth educated on the dangers and consequences of alcohol will allow them to achieve their goals and dreams. Narconon Arrowhead wants to make sure that Phoenix's youth 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 Phoenix and speak with the youth in Phoenix schools about the dangers and realities of alcohol abuse. The best defense against any addiction is knowledge.
