Many well-meaning parents think that it is enough to take away car keys at their teen’s parties so the teens can’t drink and drive. Parents provide the alcohol or allow alcohol to be consumed based on the false belief that it’s a rite of passage, especially at prom and graduation parties.

The Parents Who Host, Lose The Most: Don’t be a party to teenage drinking public awareness campaign was developed by Ohio’s Drug-Free Action Alliance in 2000 to educate parents about the health and safety risks of serving alcohol at teen parties and to increase awareness of and compliance with the Ohio Underage Drinking Laws.

This campaign is now being replicated across the country, including here in Madison County.
