The Center's Approach

Working with our national partner organizations and our cadre of experts, we are committed to being an unparalleled resource to communities and states as they implement effective evidence-based, population-level strategies to prevent excessive alcohol use. The following focus areas exemplify our dedication to using alcohol science for the community good:

Amplify resources
and increase capacity
through strategic partnerships

Deliver training and
technical assistance

with content-specific
experts

Enhance access to
the science
through development of
translational tools

Support implementation
of effective strategies

by state and local organizations

About the Center
The Center for Advancing Alcohol Science to Practice builds the capacity of communities to use alcohol science for healthy, safe, and equitable neighborhoods through evidence-based, population-level strategies. With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Alcohol Program, we are committed to preventing excessive alcohol use by creating more knowledgeable and connected communities across the nation – using alcohol science for the community good.

Excessive Alcohol Use: The Problem

Excessive alcohol use is responsible for more than 140,000 deaths each year in the United States and more than $249 billion in economic costs.

Binge drinking

Consuming four or more drinks per occasion for women; five or more drinks per occasion for men

Heavy drinking

Consuming eight or more alcoholic drinks per week
for women or 15 or more alcoholic drinks per week
for men

Any drinking by
pregnant women

Any alcohol use by
those under the age
of 21 years

The Community Guide

The Guide to Community Preventive Services (the Community Guide) is a collection of evidence-based findings of the Community Preventive Services Task Force and serves as a resource to communities selecting interventions to improve health and prevent disease. The Task Force is a nonfederal group of public health and prevention researchers and experts. The Community Guide uses a science-based approach to determine whether an intervention works and is cost effective.

Training and Technical Assistance

We offer community and state partners technical assistance (TA) to move towards the policy solutions that science shows make lasting change to reduce excessive alcohol use. We’re looking forward to exploring how we can help!

Science to Practice Resources

With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Alcohol Program, we are committed to preventing excessive alcohol use by creating more knowledgeable and connected communities across the nation – using alcohol science for the community good. The Center amplifies resources, increases capacity through strategic partnerships, delivers training and technical assistance with content-specific experts, and enhances access to the science through development of translational tools.
