Binge Drinking in Adolescents and College Students


Binge Drinking in Adolescents and College Students

Logo for Binge Drinking in Adolescents and College Students
'Despite laws in every State that make it illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to purchase or possess alcohol, young people report that alcohol is easy to obtain and that many high school and college students drink with one goal – to get drunk. Binge drinking is defined as consuming five or more drinks in a row for boys and four or more in a row for girls.'

I quickly browsed through this site in about 5 minutes. It's full of facts and
statistics, as well as informational brochures sent to your home free of charge.
The site also has a comprehensive menu of drugs that will direct you to
additional information on them.

Technical Remarks:

easily navigated and understood

This site is great and there are lots of links to useful information. I also
liked the fact that it related drugs, as one often leads to the other and I
think it's important for people to understand that.

Technical Remarks:

This site is easy for anyone to understand and easy to navigate.

I spent around 20 minutes looking at this site. It offers a lot of information
of the subject of binge drinking and is a good addition to MERLOT. It could be a
useful tool for a class on criminal justice as well as psychology. The site is
easy to navigate and understand.

I spent about 10 minutes browsing through this material. Although alarming, the
statistics were very informative. First time users shouldn't have a problem
navigating this site.
