These two causes may also lad to the rise of the problem. To begin with, I totally agree that lack of education may lead to alcohol abuse. In Mindy Sink’s article, she mentions that kids are away from home for the first time and not taught to drink responsibly. Parents and schools play an important role in educating their children and students. Since teenagers are immature to make their own decision, it is vital for adults to inculcate a correct attitude towards drinking.
Abuse and Substance Addiction in Adolescence Abuse and Substance Addiction in Adolescences Introduction Did you know that one in 15 high school seniors smoke marijuana on a daily basis or near daily basis, and close to three quarters have consumed alcohol by the end of their high school years (Feldman, 2013, p. 371)? The adolescence years can be characterized by irresponsible behavior and risky choices for some, causing the prevalence of substance abuse and addiction to be on the rise during these years. Substance abuse can be defined as the over indulgence of a substance that can lead to harmful effects for the individual and or others. Adolescents turn to substance abuse for various reasons.

The Effects Advertising Has on American Youth Angel D. Haber LIBERTY UNIVERSITY April 23, 2012 Abstract This essay is a causal analysis about the effects that alcohol advertising has on teenagers. Specifically, the question is in regards to whether advertisements lead to a rise of underage drinking in America’s youth. Using several different studies, as well as personal accounts, this essay will look to see if there is any causal relationship between the two events. There will also be a couple of examples of print advertisement showing what the average teenager sees, and how those advertisements can easily lead a teenager to alcohol. Reading this essay will give the reader perspective as to how these two events can relate to one another.
However, hormone related, antisocial behavior theoretically peaks in the teenage years of life because that is when hormonal activity is at its supreme level. The chemical named polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), once used in insulation materials, can have a negative influence in brain functioning and intelligence levels for individuals who have been exposed to the chemical for long periods of time. Siegel (2005) Research proposes that an adolescent’s diet can have an influence on the adolescents’ behavior through its impact on body chemistry and can cause involvement with substance abuse later in life. Research suggests that persistent abnormality in the way the brain metabolizes glucose can be linked to later involvement with substance abuse. Adolescents who experience intense mood swings,
