Overview

Alcohol abuse in children and adolescents has specific risks such as high percentage of mortality in this age group, the fast development of dependence, poisoning after relatively small doses and risks to the developing brain. Prevention should take place simultaneously in different settings (family, school, health care, etc.) and should take into account the developmental aspects. Prevention among high-risk children should be individualized. Finally we mention the methods used in brief intervention and treatment.

Key words:
alcohol abuse, children, adolescents, prevention, treatment.
