About half of junior high and senior high school students drink alcohol on a monthly basis, and 14% of teens have been intoxicated at least once in the past year. Nearly 8% of teens who drink say they drink at least five or more alcoholic drinks in a row (binge drink).

I see no reason why this should be a taboo for YA. Its very relevant and kids need to know that the “relief” they are finding is only temporary and the hazards they are exposing themselves to.
