Help Adolescents Avoid Alcohol

Worried about your teenager or college student abusing alcohol?

Check out their Facebook page.

That’s the advice from researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Washington, Seattle. They found that students who posted references to “being drunk” or “getting wasted” were more likely to be at risk for problem drinking.

“Underage college students and adolescents frequently display references to alcohol on Facebook, said Dr. Megan Moreno, lead author of the study. “Our study suggests that parents and college health care providers who note references to problem drinking on the Facebook profiles of adolescents should consider discussing drinking habits with their children and patients.”
