Alberta’s DrinkSense

logo_drinksense_socialIn Alberta, alcohol is so much a part of social events that it is not usually thought of as a drug. However, alcohol is a drug, albeit a legal one, and it is also the drug that Albertans use the most. For example, in the 12 months preceding the 2012 Canadian Alcohol and Drug Use Monitoring Survey (CADUMS), 76.2% of Albertans aged 15 and over used alcohol.

Most Albertans who drink do so responsibly. The proportion that drinks harmfully varies by age group. This resource will discuss the use of alcohol in Alberta, the factors that affect the use of alcohol, and the consequences of use.
