Young people and alcoholNumber 7.11 June 2009
In 2009 the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) released the Australian guidelines to reduce health risks from drinking alcohol, to help people make informed decisions about their drinking. The new guidelines outline the level of risk associated with drinking alcohol.
