About this book
Alcohol consumption and alcohol-induced social and health problems are fast increasing, while 'safe' intake levels are revised downwards. Result, a resurgence of concern. This authoritative, balanced and factual book is for social workers, community nurses, health visitors, midwives, GP's, community and religious leaders, politicians, police, voluntary and action groups, schools and teachers, and, of course, those in the drinks trade. Most importantly, it applies to those at risk, their families and carers. Free from medical jargon, loaded with diagrams, graphs and tables it dissects and informs without mystifying or judging. '...an extremely lucid and competent piece of work.' Dr Martin Plant, Alcohol Research Group, University of Edinburgh.
