Binge Drinking Evidence Review
In 2013 Drinkaware launched a review in support of the Government’s Alcohol Strategy to develop a well evidenced strategy as to the role we could play in reducing the harm from public drunkenness.
After a call for evidence, Drinkaware appointed Independent researcher Dr Simon Christmas* to submit research to inform Drinkaware’s approach.
The full report, titled ‘Drunken Nights Out: Motivations, norms and rituals in the night time economy’ was published in September 2014 and made available on the Drinkaware website.
Prior to the publication of the report, Simon presented the preliminary findings from the research earlier in 2014 at the 2014 Drinkaware Annual Conference.
