About Us

The Center for Advancing Alcohol Science to Practice is committed to preventing excessive alcohol use and underage drinking by creating more knowledgeable and connected communities across the nation.

With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Alcohol Program, we use alcohol science to create more knowledgeable and connected communities across the nation.

We do this through strategic partnerships, training and technical assistance, translational tools, and by supporting states and communities working toward effective strategies.

Our Mission

We build the capacity of communities to use alcohol science for healthy, safe, and equitable neighborhoods through evidence-based population-level strategies.

Our Vision

We envision a world of healthy, safe and equitable neighborhoods.

Our Approach

These four pillars guide our work:

Amplify resources and increase capacity through strategic partnerships

Deliver free training and technical assistance with content-specific experts

Enhance access to the science through development of translational tools

Provide guidance and support to those working on evidence-based alcohol policy issues

The Council includes a diverse set of voices committed to preventing excessive alcohol use, with representatives from public health, the medical community,  local government associations, prevention, enforcement, and regulatory organizations, along with legal alcohol policy stakeholders.
