Reducing harm caused by alcohol

Alcohol harms by local area (Scotland)

The local area profiles highlight the number of people drinking over the recommended low-risk guidelines, the number of hospital admissions and deaths as a result of alcohol, and the cost of alcohol harm to the public purse, among other key facts.
