Last week, the Obama Administration released the National Prevention and Health Promotion Strategy. One of the major priorities of this strategy is to combat “excessive alcohol use.” The strategy involves four key “directions” hoping to improve the nation’s health. The four key directions are:
1. Building Healthy and Safe Community Environments
2. Expanding Quality Preventive Services in Both Clinical and Community Settings
3. Empowering People to Make Healthy Choices
4. Eliminating Health Disparities
The strategy was developed by the National Prevention Council composed of 17 federal agencies, one of which is the Office of National Drug Control Policy. To read more on the new health strategy, click here.
