Alcohol Use Prevention Resources

Alcohol Use Prevention Resources

  • Stop Underage Drinking: The federal Interagency Coordinating Committee on the prevention of underage drinking.
  • Even if You Know About Drinking or Drugs: A booklet from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) that discusses the effects drinking and using drugs have on growing and developing brains.
  • Preventing Underage Drinking — Social Host Liability Law Q & A: A social host is anyone (adult or minor) who is in control of the premises and who furnishes alcohol or allows it to be consumed on those premises. The legal drinking age in Massachusetts is 21. It is against the law to serve or provide alcohol to underage guests or to allow them to drink alcohol in your home or on other property you control. Those who do may be prosecuted criminally. The penalty is a fine of up to $2,000, imprisonment for up to a year, or both. (M.G.L. c. 138, s. 34).
