Texans Standing Tall
What is social access? Social access to alcohol refers to underage individuals (under the age of 21) obtaining alcohol from social settings, such as from friends, parties, and other adults.
What's the concern? Data indicates that alcohol is the most commonly used substance among youth and the majority of underage drinkers – both high school and college - obtain alcohol socially from parties and friends. Texas youth attend and host loud and unruly drinking parties which can result in drinking and driving, alcohol poisonings, sexual assaults, property damage, and other negative consequences.
Solving the problem! To reduce the negative consequences that result from underage drinking, we are working to limit youth social access to alcohol across Texas. We are the only statewide coalition whose primary goal is working to prevent underage alcohol use.
Get involved! We offer a variety of resources to assist coalitions in reducing youth social access to alcohol on the local level. Join our coalition efforts!
