Abstract

An integrated, planned and implemented community prevention
system is needed to tackle the excessive alcohol use in young people.
Young people’s drinking is a major cause for concern for policymakers,
communities, parents and many young people themselves.
Many interventions have been attempted to try to prevent this
excessive use of alcohol. This report reviews these, summarises the
findings, and suggests that an integrated, planed and implemented
community prevention system is needed.
The report:
• examines the prevention approaches which have been developed,
based on the major socialising influences on children and young
people as they learn about alcohol and begin to drink which were
reviewed in a partner report, ‘Influences on how children and
young people learn about and behave towards alcohol’;
• establishes the efficacy of current interventions;
• explores implications for future interventions;
• concludes that young people’s norms about drinking need to be
changed;
• lays out a range of suggestions for how interventions might be
changed, and for how a universal prevention programme might be
developed and delivered.
