Conducting an alcohol use needs assessment to help guide efforts to reduce alcohol misuse in Wisconsin
Return to Listing
Excessive alcohol consumption is a significant public health issue in Wisconsin. Wisconsinites consume 634 drinks per person per year in comparison to 486 drinks per person per year nationally. Excessive drinking in Wisconsin translates to approximately 1,500 deaths, over 48,000 hospitalizations, 46,000 treatment admissions, over 60,000 arrests, and 5,700 motor vehicle crashes annually, necessitating continued and expanded work to support local entities in addressing alcohol-related issues and implementing solutions in their communities and across the state.
Through this award, the Wisconsin Alcohol Policy Project (WAPP) will determine the gaps in data related to alcohol use and survey the landscape of current alcohol-related work in Wisconsin, while developing a partnership between the WAPP and the Medical College of Wisconsin's Comprehensive Injury Center.
