Date:12/29/2009

s Goldbaum, a board-certified cardiologist and Associate Professor of Medicine at Georgetown University.

This program is being launched at a critical time. Alcohol addiction is now the number one health problem in the US and in more than forty countries worldwide(2,3). Sadly, underage drinking lays the foundation for alcoholism and related health problems later in life, such as heart disease, cancer, and brain damage. Even advanced brain imaging has shown that kids who drink develop a smaller brain than those who do not(4).

NIFAR seeks to reduce the social and economic impact of problem drinking with Youth Awareness and other breakthrough programs in alcohol recovery and family support. To learn more, please visit www.nifar.com. Or contact Kamran Loghman, Executive Director, at 301.216.2220.

About Youth Awareness

This new, dynamic program was developed by substance abuse experts, but it was designed by kids, for kids. It features two college-age people struggling with the difficult choices and consequences of drinking. The two interact in a playful way, with lively banter that today’s kids will find entertaining. Together, they present a positive and eye-opening program with valuable information for kids and parents alike. To learn more about Youth Awareness, alcohol addiction, or the latest in alcohol recovery techniques please visit www.nifar.com.
