Alcohol is the most widely used drug in the United States. More than half of all adults consumed at least 12 drinks in 2010, and nearly 7 out of 10 adults had one or more drinks that year. However, alcohol is also the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States. Between 2001 and 2005, Pennsylvania lost 579 young men and 135 young women under the age of 35 to alcohol-related deaths. The Bureau of Alcohol Education is committed to preventing underage and dangerous alcohol use in Pennsylvania and its consequences for individuals, families, and our Pennsylvania communities. We offer a variety of resources for communities, prevention groups, schools and colleges, and law enforcement agencies, including training programs, technical assistance, and print materials.
