AIM: The specific goals of this study were to investigate the determinant factors of alcohol consumption in Indonesian adolescents.

METHOD: The research design used is a survey with a cross-sectional approach using data from Indonesia—Global School-Based Student Health Survey 2015. The sample consisted of adolescents aged 13–17 years who attended school in all regions of Indonesia. The total sample was 11 142 teenagers. For the data analysis, frequency distribution, percentage, chi-square, and multinomial logistic regression were used.

RESULTS: Factors that affect alcohol consumption in adolescents in Indonesia were age, gender, and parental attention related to academics (p < .001). Early teens were 1.5 times more likely to consume alcohol (95% CI: 1.204––1.778) compared to late teens. Good parental attention to adolescent academics can inhibit alcohol consumption by 0.8 times (95% CI: 0.762–0.887) compared to parents who do not pay attention to academics.

CONCLUSION: Factors that influence teenagers to consume alcohol are age, gender, and parents’ who does not pay attention to adolescent academics. Involving the role of parents is a strategic part of the alcohol consumption prevention program in adolescents.
