Adolescents and Hand Sanitizer
Why Do Adolescents Drink Hand Sanitizer?Hand sanitizer certainly isn't the most appealing of beverage options. However, flavor is not the reason young people are reaching for the gels. The primary focus of consuming high alcohol content substances is to experience the intoxicating effects that they have. Risk taking and thrill seeking in adolescents is common as an independent trait. They can also develop as coping mechanisms for underlying issues such as depression, anxiety, or trauma.
