The Grey Bruce Health Communities Partnership report Reducing Alcohol
Related Harm: Moving Toward a Culture of Moderation in Grey Bruce
identifies seven recommendations for community-based actions to address the
issue of alcohol misuse in Grey Bruce. The issue is not that Grey Bruce
residents drink alcohol; but rather how much, how often and the context for
drinking is the issue. That level of drinking has considerable social, health
and economic impacts on our community and the public significantly
underestimates the seriousness of these consequences.
