Keeping Score on Alcohol: Millennium Hangover.
Drug Strategies, Washington, DC.
This report is issued by Drug Strategies, a non-profit research institute that promotes more effective approaches to the nation's drug problems and supports private and public initiatives that reduce the demand for drugs through prevention, treatment, and law enforcement. Drug Strategies prepares "Keeping Score" annually to capture the dimensions of the nation's drug abuse problems, and to assess the impact of Federal spending to address these problems. This report is designed to help Americans understand the priorities reflected in Federal spending so that they can judge for themselves the effectiveness of Federal policies. "Keeping Score" also identifies strategies and programs that are making a difference in communities across the country. "Keeping Score 1999" is focused on America's most pervasive drug problem: alcohol. To underscore alcohol's far reaching effects on society, drinking is examined from many different perspectives, including public health, criminal justice, the workplace, schools, the impact on children and young adults, treatment, and prevention. "Keeping Score 1999" explores the many dimensions of drinking among children, students, and adults, and the myriad effects of alcohol on families and communities. The report also looks at the availability of alcohol in America and its impact on society. (Contains 63 references.) (Author/GCP)
