NEW YORK, May 08, 2012, 8:39 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- As many teens get ready for their much-anticipated, end-of-the year celebration, Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center issues an important reminder.
Prom season is a time of excitement for many of America's youth. However, statistics show that nearly one-third of the alcohol related automobile accidents involving teens occur during the period of April, May, and June.
ďThis time of year, parents and students both tend to get caught up in the excitement of prom season,Ē begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center . ďDuring this time of excitement, however, it's important to remember the dangers of underage drinking, as well as driving with someone who may be of legal age who has been drinking. The realities of the statistics are harsh - more teens and young adults will face tragedies during these three months in alcohol-related accidents than at any other time of the year. Parents are strongly urged to make certain that they know who their children will be with and, as Ďuncool' as it may be, to even be a designated driver for their children. Being proactive and having open communication with your children can go a long way in preventing tragedies from occurring.Ē
