This quality standard covers preventing and identifying alcohol problems in the community. It includes policy and practice approaches to prevent harmful alcohol use in adults, young people and children. It is particularly relevant to local authorities, the police, and schools and colleges. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.

 

It does not cover identifying and supporting adults and young people who may have an alcohol problem, which is covered by NICE’s quality standard on alcohol-use disorders: diagnosis and management.
