Binge drinking or heavy episodic drinking has a great impact on public safety and health.
In 2016 the STAD in Europe project (SiE) was launched. SiE is a European collaboration of 7 countries aiming to develop more knowledge on effective strategies to reduce binge drinking by limiting the availability of alcohol. STAD is a community approach and is based on the plan, do, study, act-cycle. This manual gives useful and practical information for all people willing to initiate and implement the STAD approach in their community.
The publication outlines the development of the programme. It offers a guide on how to conduct a needs assessment and start working with the STAD approach in your community. Finally, it gives advice on how to effectively and ethically monitor the progress of the programme within your community.
