More Off-Premise Alcohol Outlets can Lead to More Injuries among Neighborhood Children

  • Injuries are the leading cause of death among children ages one to 14 in the United States.
  • A first-of-its-kind study shows that numerous off-premise alcohol outlets in neighborhoods can reduce overall guardianship of children’s activities, leading to increased injuries.

Funding for this Addiction Science Made Easy project is provided by the Addiction Technology Transfer Center National Office, under the cooperative agreement from the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment of SAMHSA.
