Excessive Alcohol Consumption Prevention

When communities need to know how to protect and improve their population’s health, they turn to The Community Guide, a collection of evidence-based recommendations and findings from the Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF).

Alcohol Action Network

The Alcohol Action Network (AAN) is a project of the American Public Health Association’s Alcohol, Tobacco, & Other Drugs (ATOD) Section. AAN was initially established to address the shifting alcohol policy landscape at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to bring prevention specialists together to address policy issues as they arise.

ChangeLab Solutions created this infographic to provide an overview of how allowing localities to regulate the density of alcohol retail outlets works to reduce excessive consumption, as well as of the public health effects of that reduced consumption.
