National Drug Council

According to the Cayman Islands Drug and Alcohol Survey 2000, approximately three out of every five adults (61.2%) in the Cayman Islands has tried alcohol during their lifetime. The highest level of liquor consumption was found among young adults aged 20-29 year-olds (41.7%). Usually, a young person with alcohol problems has been exposed to alcoholism in their immediate family, which is not to suggest that the family should be blamed when and if an individual develops an issue. A combination of genetics and environment determine who develops the disease.
