Excessive alcohol consumption is the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States. It happens in many forms and includes binge drinking, heavy drinking, underage drinking, and any drinking by pregnant women. Each of these behaviors presents risks both to the individual who is engaging in the behavior, as well as their community. The CDC has outlined both short- and long- term health and social consequences of excessive consumption and, unfortunately, Nebraska is among the worst in the country in some of these alcohol-related harms. However, research has identified evidence-based strategies that communities can implement in order to prevent and reduce excessive alcohol consumption and its related harms.
