Prevention

There is evidence that a reduction in national per capita alcohol consumption, and hence a reduction in the number of people with alcohol-related problems, could be achieved by increasing the price of alcohol. Other measures which may be presumed to be helpful include education about the dangers of alcohol, increasing the availability of non-alcoholic drinks at business and social functions, discouraging advertisements for drink, and placing restrictions on availability in shops and catering establishments. However, some of these suggestions run counter to civil liberty arguments, and, perhaps more to the point, to powerful vested interests.
