Drug and alcohol use among young people

Series type: Selected issues

Summary

Young people are often at the leading edge of social change, and upward trends in alcohol and illicit drug use by young people constitute an important social development in the EU. The inclusion of alcohol arose out of concerns about complex patterns of substance use and associated dependency, health damage and criminal behaviour. These patterns of psychoactive substance use present a particular challenge for policy-makers to develop an appropriately wide and timely range of responses for effective action.
