This initiative began with a small working group in the field of addiction treatment but soon involved public health experts and a range of other colleagues in various services and organisations who are dealing with the negative impacts of alcohol on a daily basis, and has quickly grown into a broad network of people throughout the country.
The majority of us enjoy drinking alcohol, but all are alarmed about the way alcohol dominates many social situations and the scale of unhealthy and dangerous drinking in contemporary New Zealand – a crisis that enriches the liquor industry while causing immense harm to individuals and society as a whole.
