This book goes some way to answering the questions of how the harm done by alcohol use can be prevented and managed in primary health care. It discusses strategies and approaches that can be adopted by primary health care providers in their everyday work with individuals and families, and outlines the possibilities for them to participate in community action and to advocate for healthy public policy on alcohol.
