Another recent Alcohol Concern Wales report explores the role of alcohol services in tackling alcohol misuse in Wales:
Unsurprisingly, given the current outlook for public spending, alcohol services in Wales have serious concerns about their own financial future. These concerns are intensified by the ongoing high levels of demand for alcohol treatment. Whilst recognising current public funding constraints, Alcohol Concern argues that the immediate and long term benefits of alcohol services to individuals, society and the public purse justify supporting, developing and investing in them.
A drinking nation? Wales and alcohol was published in 2010, with a follow up report in 2011. Another recent report 'Mixed messages' warned of possible dangers of mixing highly caffeinated drinks with alcohol. Alcohol Concern Wales’s Drink Wise Wales website contains an alcohol and energy drink counter outlining the amount of alcohol, caffeine and sugar in common energy drink cocktails.
