Author: LST Needed for British Youth

In response to recent reports showing that Britain has a high rate of binge-drinking and teenage pregnancy, author Sonia Sodha voices her opinion on what needs to be done.

"Rather than more hand-wringing and sensationalist reporting, stated Sodha, we should be actively looking for the right solutions to these problems-and ways to prevent them in the first place."

Ms. Sodha mentioned using Botvin LifeSkills Training as a strategy. "This has had excellent success rates-reducing alcohol and substance abuse by 50-75%...and every dollar spent on the program saves the state and society $25 in the long run through reductions in crime, antisocial behavior and other problems."
