PREVENTION & EDUCATION
Research has shown that people who use alcohol before age 15 are six times more likely to become alcoholic dependent than adults who begin drinking at age 21. Learn how BADC is working to prevent underage drinking and explore resources for prevention and education.
The DFC program aims to reduce underage drinking by reducing social access to alcohol. Youth report getting most of their alcohol from an older friend or relative, even a parent.
The following are strategies implemented to help reduce social access to alcohol by minors:
Red Ribbon Week
Bulloch Game Changers
Sticker Shock Campaign
Educating adults on consequences of providing alcohol to minors
Working to require alcohol seller/server training to off-premise retailers
