Alcohol and Violence

Alcohol, instead of providing a relaxed mood, can create an aggressive mood. There is a link that alcohol may increase your chance to argue and there is a strong link between alcohol and violence.  The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence report:

  • Each year, more than 600,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 are assaulted by another student who has been drinking.
  • 95% of all violent crime on college campuses involves the use of alcohol by the assailant, victim or both.
  • 90% of acquaintance rape and sexual assault on college campuses involves the use of alcohol by the assailant, victim or both.
