Prevention

The Mission of the Logan Square Neighborhood Association (LSNA) Prevention Team is to increase the awareness of alcohol use among youth, decrease it’s use and decrease acceptance by their peers and consenting adults.

  • Alcohol is the most widely used drug among youth. 
  • 7, 000 kids under the age of 16 start drinking every day and alcohol is responsible for more than 4,500 deaths per year under age 21.
  • Early use of alcohol can impede a child’s physical, mental, and social development.
