The Wisconsin State Council on Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (SCAODA) has released a new report offering 49 Wisconsin specific recommendations to improve Wisconsin’s alcohol environment. Unlike states where major aspects of alcohol policy are under state wide control, Wisconsin’s reliance on municipal control allows communities to take control and improve their community alcohol environment.
The report is the product of The Alcohol Culture and Environment work group of SCAODA’s Prevention Committee, a multi-disciplinary work group. Nina Emerson, Director of the Resource Center on Impaired Driving served on the group which was chaired by Julia Sherman, Coordinator of the Wisconsin Alcohol Policy Project at the Resource Center. Other work group members included community coalition leaders, local elected officials, law enforcement, public health officials and the Wisconsin Departments of Transportation and Health Services.
