Extreme Drinking

Policy Issues  Extreme Drinking

Also described as "binge" or "heavy episodic" drinking, extreme drinking is a rapid and heavy alcohol consumption pattern that has been a challenge to define and measure. It is characterised by intoxication and represents a particular public health concern in relation to young people.

However this behavior is termed, this and other potentially risky drinking patterns require special attention and a targeted approach through prevention and a focus on motivations, processes, and negative outcomes.
