Results of a survey conducted by Social Advocates for Youth (SAY), a private, nonprofit, San Francisco firm, report that 45% of the 4th.6th grade youth consider themselves to be current users of alcohol. While 20% reported consumption once per month and 8% once per week, 9% “said their use of alcohol represented personal problems which they would like to discuss with another person.” Younger students tended to report preferences for parents in discussing the matter while older students tended to prefer friends. “Other sources of help, such as teachers or guidance counselors, were only infrequently used by respondents, according to survey results.”
