POSED BY MODEL. File photo dated 29/01/09 of a person drinking alcohol as twice as many young people living in the North East of England receive treatment for alcohol problems compared with the rest of the country, a study has found. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Monday May 7, 2012. Figures from health campaign group Balance show 118 of every 100,000 under 18s in the North East were treated for drink problems - double the national average. More than 600 of the 9,450 people receiving specialist alcohol treatment in the region in 2010/11 were under the age of 18, Balance said. The North East-based group is now calling for a review of alcohol advertising to help tackle 'harmful and hazardous' levels of drinking among young people. See PA story HEALTH Alcohol.
