Warwickshire has realized a dramatic fall in the number of youngsters drinking alcohol, a recent report has revealed. Though, the figures are still crossing the national average in terms of drinking.
The figures have been released after a Pupil Survey in the region. It has been noted that the rate of the ones who have never touched the evil has also risen this year, reaching 28.5%. The same was realized at 18.7% in 2009.
While the findings are being entertained by the drug and alcohol action team's Paul Hooper, it is being said that more work is still required. Young people need to be educated as well as well-informed about the harms of alcohol use. Also, some of them need help so as to keep their health protected.
About 6% drop is being noticed each week in the number of people drinking alcohol. Besides, the rates of hospital admissions related to alcohol use by under-18s have also plummeted. However, services to provide one to one support for further reduction in alcohol use have been commissioned by Warwickshire County Council.
"This survey has revealed positive trends relating to young people's alcohol use. Whilst these figures are reassuring we will not get complacent in our attempts to tackle the issue", said Hooper.
