This book considers alcohol use and its problems in the UK, taking account of mounting concerns about health and anti-social behavior in the early years of the 21st century. These concerns are set against the decreasing price of alcohol and increasing consumption over the past four decades. The first section of the book establishes the context of alcohol consumption as a driver of health issues, describing the commercial and public policy interests at play and the consequences at individual and societal levels. In the second part, policy areas are established, ranging from price and availability, advertising, law, licensing, education, offending, and drunken driving. The final section looks at the professional responses and training needs of those encountering alcohol-generated problems in their work, as well as early intervention and treatment programs. The book will appeal to those training in public health and social care. Additionally, it will be of interest to managers and policy makers who are wrestling with alcohol issues. (Series: Policy & Practice in Health and Social Care - No. 15)
