 Abstract
Frequent and hazardous rates of consumption of alcoholic beverages is particularly pronounced among adolescents and young adults in many nations around the world. This has lead to pervasive alcohol-related harm in North America, Europe and Australasia. This paper draws from an analysis of various national and international data reports, including the World Health Organization, in an effort to explore the extent of alcohol-related harm internationally. The extent of the harm is revealed in both human and financial costs. The relationship between alcohol availability and harm is discussed.

 Rezumat
Consumul frecvent si īntāmplător de băuturi alcoolice este evidențiat īn mod special īn rāndul tinerilor si adolescenților din multe țări. Aceasta a dus la răspāndirea efectelor negative legate de alcool īn America de Nord, Europa si Australia. Lucrarea de față se bazează pe analiza a numeroase rapoarte naționale si internaționale, inclusiv cele redactate de Organizația Mondială a Sănătății, si are ca obiectiv explorarea efectelor negative produse de consumul de alcool. Dimensiunea răului este vizibilă atāt la nivelul relațiilor interumane, cāt si la cel financiar. De asemenea, este discutată relația dintre accesibilitatea alcoolului si efectele acestei situații.
