Teen Brains at Risk
Alcohol can cause alterations in the structure and function of the developing brain, which continues to mature into a person’s mid 20s, and it may have consequences reaching far beyond adolescence. Drinking alcohol over long periods of time can damage the frontal lobes forever.
Do you care about safe and healthy youth? You can help reduce underage drinking, impaired driving and substance misuse, while improving the mental health and happiness of the young people in our Lyons Township Communities.
Join us in developing programs and communication around our mission.
The road to adulthood can be a roller-coaster of raw emotions. It’s unrealistic to think that teens, even high achievers and kids who have never been in trouble, will not be tempted to experiment with alcohol. Peer pressure, availability and social acceptance too often lead to alcohol abuse and even dependency. Worse, one bad decision made while impaired with alcohol or drugs can lead to tragic consequences.
