New Site: Rethinking Drinking

NIAAA Creates Website to Assess & Address Drinking Risks The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has created a new website, Rethinking Drinking http://rethinkingdrinking.niaaa.nih.gov is designed to help users define their drinking patterns and develop strategies and options for dealing with alcohol-related problems. The website utilizes an interactive form that allows users to enter daily and weekly drinking amounts to determine how their consumption compares with national averages. The site has a drink-size chart and a content calculator to aid in determining what comprises a “standard” drink. The new website is part of a broader effort to increase understanding of the array of alcohol-related disorders and redefine the way terms like “abuse” and “dependence” are used. Source: Join Together
