Unrecognised And Under Reported: the impact of alcohol on people other than the drinker in Scotland
In recent years there has been increasing recognition that harm from alcohol not only affects the drinker, but also affects others around the drinker including family members, friends, co-workers and the wider community. Alcohol Focus Scotland commissioned this research study to better understand the scale and magnitude of alcohol’s harm to others in Scotland.

This study has specifically focused on the harm experienced due to other people’s drinking to build a better understanding of this under-researched area of alcohol-related harm in Scotland.
