Adolescent alcohol use is related to a variety of problem behaviors, including harmful alcohol use, drinking and driving, risky sex, and violence. The article explored the perspectives on alcohol drinking patterns, consequences, and risk factors contributing to drinking amongst the youth living in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. Alcohol is one of the most commonly consumed substances in South Africa, despite the many health problems associated with excessive alcohol use. Young people’s consumption of alcohol is an ongoing problem. Many young adults binge-drink alcohol excessively, with serious negative consequences thereafter. The study intends to realize the consequence causing alcoholism among adolescents in the Northern Cape Province in South Africa. Qualitative research method were adopted for the study. Adolescents between the ages of 14 and 35 who consume alcohol were the population of the study in the Northern Cape Province. Participants were knowledgeable of the cultural lives of their reservation communities. Although there was an agreement regarding the pervasiveness of heavy drinking, participants reported different opinions about the meaning of alcohol and appropriate intervention strategies. Three dilemmas were identified, suggesting that community ambivalence may serve as a barrier to reducing problem drinking. Implications, limitations, and future research directions are discussed. The study finding is lastly presented chronologically.
