In this issue, Dr. Philip May presents to Indian reservations and bordertown communities a comprehensive, consistent and clearly defined alcohol prevention/intervention policy. It follows a systematic, public health approach that considers the physical, mental, and social well-being of every individual within the region. This issue addresses all types of problematic alcohol consumption--from sporadic to regular, alcohol abuse and chronic alcoholism. It presents a variety of options for addressing alcohol problems that have been found to be of value in the control and reduction of alcohol abuse and related problems. Many figures from the field comment on and debate these issues, resulting in a highly readable and practical sourcebook.
