Alcohol Awareness Printable (** for premium members only)

In honor of April’s status as Alcohol Awareness Month, this week’s crop of sites for kids, teens and the grownups that love them focus on the dangers of underage drinking and alcohol abuse.

Above the Influence: Alcohol
*****
“Our goal is to help you stay above the influence. The more aware you are of the influences around you, the better prepared you will be to stand up to the pressures that keep you down.” Created by the Office of National Drug Control Policy, this site has facts about all kinds of drugs, from alcohol to tobacco. Although alcohol gets only a single page, I’ve included it because the rest of the site is worth a visit (or two!) “Alcohol is a depressant that affects every part of your body. The damage it does now can impact the rest of your life.”

Ask, Listen, Learn
*****
Using games and printable activity sheets, Ask, Listen, Learn “provides youth ages 9-14 and their parents with information about the dangers of underage drinking” and the benefits of making healthy choices. Grownups can download the Facilitators Guide, Parents’ Fact Sheet, and a variety of printable brochures that will help teachers incorporate the site into lesson plans and guide parents on using the site to promote dialogue with their teens about the dangers of alcohol abuse.

Check Yourself
*****
“A place for teens to check out where they are with drugs and alcohol.” Check Yourself offers quizzes and decision games providing older teens a safe place to explore their lifestyle choices. “Most importantly, visitors will be able to get factual answers to questions about substance abuse, learn how to talk about their concerns with people who can help them, and get information about counseling and treatment facilities.”
