Binge drinking and Alcohol-use disorders: preventing harmful drinking

The Department of Health asked the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) to produce public health guidance on the prevention and early identification of alcohol-use disorders among adults and adolescents. The guidance is for government, industry and commerce, the NHS and all those whose actions affect the population’s attitude to – and use of – alcohol. This includes commissioners, managers and practitioners working in local authorities, education and the wider public, private, voluntary and community sectors. In addition, it may be of interest to members of the public. This is one of three pieces of NICE guidance addressing alcohol-related problems among people aged 10 years and older. The others are: ‘Alcohol-use disorders: diagnosis and clinical management of alcohol-related physical complications’ (NICE clinical guideline 100 [2010]). A clinical guideline covering acute alcohol withdrawal including delirium tremens, alcohol-related liver damage, alcohol-related pancreatitis and management of Wernicke’s encephalopathy. ‘Alcohol-use disorders: diagnosis, assessment and management of harmful drinking and alcohol dependence’ (NICE clinical guideline 115 [2011]).
