Because young adults do not tend to identify themselves as having alcohol problems, proactive screening is recommended (1). Such screening is especially effective in locations where young adults are likely to seek treatment for alcohol-related injuries or illness. Among 18- to 24-year-olds, these settings may include hospital emergency departments, college counseling centers, or worksites. Screening also may be conducted as part of college-sponsored judicial review programs for alcohol-related infractions of campus policies.

Young Adult is not a genre. I hear that often — “the YA genre.” You’re wrong. Don’t call it that. Stop it. Young Adult is a proposed age range for those who wish to read a particular book. It is a demographic rather than an agglomeration of people who like to read stories about, say, Swashbuckling Dinosaur Princesses or Space Manatee Antiheroes or whatever the cool kid genres are these days. Repeat after me: Young Adult is not a genre designation. See? Not so hard.

Of these strategies, the effects of raising alcohol prices have been the most extensively studied. The most common method of raising prices is to increase Federal, State, or local taxes on alcoholic beverages. Studies show that underage youth are particularly sensitive to increased prices, decreasing their alcohol consumption by a greater amount than older drinkers (55). A few studies have looked at how alcohol prices affect drinking among college students and young adults (55). One study showed that college students faced with higher alcohol prices were less likely to transition from being abstainers to moderate drinkers and from moderate to heavy drinkers (56). Another study found that low sale prices were associated with higher rates of heavy episodic drinking among college students (57).
