Alcohol is one of our society's most accepted drugs, and yet its influences can be devastating. This edition of Visions looks at alcohol use and its personal, social and economic impacts and its effects on mental and physical health. Articles in this issue explore safe drinking guidelines, the link between alcohol and anxiety, nutrition solutions, women and alcohol use, pregnancy and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, and the way we talk about alcohol. Different intervention strategies are discussed, and programs dealing with alcohol abuse throughout the BC are described.
