Bottom Line: Moreover, many of the effects that alcohol use has on the drinker, in both the short and long term, depend on the developmental timing of alcohol use or exposure.Finally, many developmental connections have been observed in the risk and protective factors that predict the likelihood of problem alcohol use in young people.Therefore, efforts to understand and address underage drinking would benefit from a developmental perspective, and the general principles of developmental psychopathology offer a useful conceptual framework for research and prevention concerned with underage drinking.

ABSTRACT
Underage alcohol use can be viewed as a developmental phenomenon because many kinds of developmental changes and expectations appear to influence this behavior and also because it has consequences for development. Data on alcohol use, abuse, and dependence show clear age-related patterns. Moreover, many of the effects that alcohol use has on the drinker, in both the short and long term, depend on the developmental timing of alcohol use or exposure. Finally, many developmental connections have been observed in the risk and protective factors that predict the likelihood of problem alcohol use in young people. Therefore, efforts to understand and address underage drinking would benefit from a developmental perspective, and the general principles of developmental psychopathology offer a useful conceptual framework for research and prevention concerned with underage drinking.

Mentions: Alcohol dependence, as defined by the criteria of the American Psychiatric Association in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM–IV), typically emerges during late adolescence or early in the young-adult years. As shown in figure 6, past-year prevalence of DSM–IV alcohol dependence dramatically increases between ages 12 and 20 and peaks between ages 18 and 20. Moreover, children and youth whose alcohol use begins earlier (typically in childhood or early adolescence) are much more likely to develop alcohol dependence (see figure 7).
