To examine the associations of alcohol expectancy outcomes and valuations with intention to use.
A total of 157 adolescent nonusers completed anonymous self-report surveys.
Adolescents who perceived more access to alcohol, expected less negative and more positive drinking outcomes, and evaluated positive outcomes favorably reported greater intentions to drink in adulthood.
Findings may be useful for efforts to further delay the initiation of alcohol use.
