Summary

Praise for the previous edition:
"...clear and concise...broad in scope...do[es] an excellent job of providing accurate information for teens...belong[s] in any library serving young adults."—School Library Journal

Alcohol use and abuse are linked to homicide, suicide, violence, cancer, and accidental deaths, and alcohol is often a key factor in the deaths of young people. But beyond that, even those who don't drink can suffer if someone close to them abuses alcohol. According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, a person who consumes five or more drinks on at least five different occasions during a month is a heavy drinker. But it isn't necessary to drink heavily to experience some of the problems associated with alcohol abuse.

The Truth About Alcohol, Second Edition presents the facts and figures about alcohol consumption in a clear and balanced format. The A-to-Z entries in this revised resource detail the social, legal, and personal ramifications of alcohol abuse, while personal testimonies and question-and-answer sections provide readers with an inside look at the world of alcoholism.

New and revised entries include:

  • Alcohol and depression
  • Binge drinking among teenagers
  • Causes of alcoholism
  • Children of alcoholics
  • Drinking and driving
  • Drinking on college campuses
  • History of alcohol
  • Responsible choices
  • Screening for alcoholism
  • Sexual behavior and alcohol.
