No One’s House

No One’s House is a new initiative the Anti-Drug Coalition of Citrus County will launch in October 2016.

This initiative is a comprehensive social norming campaign that works to reduce the amount of parents in a community who are providing teens with alcohol and/or allowing teens to drink in their homes.

​We know many parents have the attitude that letting teens drink under their roof is “safe drinking”, but when it comes to teens, there is no safe drinking. Providing teens with alcohol or allowing teen drinking in your home is not only against the law, is also against the beliefs of the majority of parents. Teen drinking is the cause of a series of adverse effects including: motor vehicle crashes, risky sexual behaviors; accidental deaths; decreased school performance; brain impairment; economic costs to communities, and more.

As soon as the campaign is launched, more information will become available to the community.  We look forward developing this message in Citrus County among parents, guardians, friends, and relatives of teens.

Did You Know?

  • It is illegal to provide anyone, even your own child, alcohol if they are under the age of 21.
  • If you are caught providing alcohol to minors you face fines and jail time.
  • You may be held liable for any injures or damages caused by providing a minor with alcohol- no matter where that occurs.
  • The teen brain is developing until the age of 25 and alcohol can damage that developing brain.
  • Research shows that underage drinking has a series of negative consequences including reduced school performance, crime, injuries, risky sexual situations, motor vehicle crashes, and large economic impacts.

W​hat You Can Do:

  • Refuse to give anyone alcohol who is under 21.
  • Be home when your teen has friends over.
  • Be sure teens are not bringing alcohol into your home.
  • Lock up any alcohol in your home.
  • Talk to other parents. Make sure they know you do not support underage drinking.
