Addiction: 2010, 105, p. 49–55.

When the English Department of Health's alcohol policy support team visited local areas, they found an improving but often muddled and uncoordinated attempt to improve public health through alcohol-related interventions which lacked consistent commitment.

STUDY 2011 HTM file

Parkes T., MacAskill S., Brooks O. et al.
NHS Health Scotland, 2011.
What does the Scottish Prison Service need to do to adequately address alcohol problems among inmates? This needs assessment funded by the Scottish Government assesses the size of the problem, identifies the gaps, and recommends ways to plug them based on a review of relevant research.

STUDY 2011 HTM file
Scoping study of interventions for offenders with alcohol problems in community justice settings

McCoard S., Skellington Orr K., McKellar J. et al.
NHS Health Scotland, 2011.
Investigates what outside prison is being done in Scotland to meet the needs of problem drinking offenders by criminal justice and other services, and assesses whether local arrangements measure up to the size and nature of the task. Non-evidence based funding and the need to develop integrated care pathways emerged as key issues.

REVIEW 2011 HTM file
Interventions for disorder and severe intoxication in and around licensed premises, 1989–2009

Brennan I., Moore S.C., Byrne E. et al.
Addiction: 2011, 106, p. 706–713.
Surprisingly, the big problem of disorder and violence associated with bars, clubs and pubs has not attracted a correspondingly large evidence base on how to prevent it. This review concludes that training bar staff to identify and respond to warning signs has some potential.

STUDY 2009 HTM file
Randomized controlled trial of cognitive-behavioural therapy for coexisting depression and alcohol problems: short-term outcome

Baker A.L., Kavanagh D.J., Kay-Lambkin F. et al.
Addiction: 2009, 105, p. 87–99.
