Tackling Alcohol Misuse in Teenagers: What Works and How Can Practice Develop? Final Report

Billings, Jenny R. (2009) Tackling Alcohol Misuse in Teenagers: What Works and How Can Practice Develop? Final Report. Project report. Centre for Health Services Studies, Canterbury (KAR id:24380)


In February 2009, the Health and Europe Centre commissioned an international literature review to identify effective interventions in relation to the issue of young people and alcohol. This piece of research has been funded through the NHS Eastern and Coastal Kent Social Marketing Committee and its primary purpose has been to inform the content of ‘WASTED: An International Conference on Alcohol and Young People’ which is taking place on 20th November 2009 in Ashford, Kent. The conference aims to highlight effective interventions which can be used to redesign services and target existing resources more effectively, leading to a longer-term reduction in underage drinking.

Another specific aim of the literature review has been to identify successful or promising interventions which have used social marketing techniques to prevent, reduce or delay the onset of drinking amongst adolescents and to disseminate the results of these findings to local policy makers and practitioners.
