Underage Drinking Summary of the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health   Share External link. Please review our Disclaimer 

Every year, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration conducts a national survey of our nation’s behavioral health. One measure is alcohol use by 12- to 20-year-olds. Data from the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health indicate that progress is being made in reducing underage drinking, with continuing declines in current, binge, and heavy drinking since 2002. In 2013, there were one-half million fewer 12- to 20-year-old current drinkers than in 2012. More needs to be done, however, as too many young people continue to risk their health and future through illegal and dangerous underage alcohol use.
