Advocating Policies to Reduce Alcohol Problems
Alcohol-related problems cost American society nearly $200 billion per year and cause as many as 100,000 deaths annually. The alcoholic-beverage industry's relentless marketing and powerful political influence, coupled with ineffective government alcohol policies, contribute to this ongoing public health and safety epidemic.
CSPI helps focus public and decision-maker attention on high-leverage policy reforms to reduce the devastating health and social consequences of drinking. We work with many organizations and individuals to promote a comprehensive, prevention-oriented approach to the role of alcohol in society by addressing alcohol advertising, excise taxes, changes in product labeling, and other population-based policy reforms.
