The Scottish Government published Changing Scotland’s Relationship with Alcohol: A Framework for Action in March 2009.

Alcohol misuse is widely recognised by health experts as one of Scotland’s most pressing public health concerns and the ‘Framework’ addresses issues around reducing alcohol consumption, tackling the damaging impact alcohol misuse has on our families and communities, encouraging positive attitudes and positive choices and improving the support and treatment available to tackle alcohol misuse.

The Framework for Action recognised that alcohol misuse is much more prevalent across Scottish society than previously recognised. As a result the Framework adopts a whole population approach, as well as recognising that some vulnerable groups require a more targeted approach.
