The Foundation supports prevention interventions that aim to reduce the harmful use of alcohol. These interventions are adapted by the local steering committees to take each community’s unique context into account. Interventions include:
Screening and brief interventions by health providers
Family and school-based interventions, such as communities that care and brief-motivational interviewing
Traffic and road safety interventions, such as roadside breath testing programs
Alcohol-related violence prevention efforts
Environmental interventions, such as responsible beverage service programs
Social marketing and behavior change communications campaigns
