Alcohol Misuse: Screening and Behavioral Counseling Interventions in Adolescents

Description of Resource: 
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening and behavioral counseling interventions in primary care settings in adolescents to reduce alcohol misuse. This is an I statement, which means evidence is lacking, of poor quality, or conflicting, and the balance of benefits and harms cannot be determined.
