a campaign Awareness
As happens with illegal narcotic drugs, it is possible in the case of alcohol to imagine a process that, based on the personal condition of individuals, helps them to shift from a massive use of substances to a more moderate use, and hence to reduce the respective harmful effects produced. Harm reduction interventions do not therefore focus on the profound reasons and causes behind alcohol dependence, but aim to achieve three closely related objectives: identification of the risks and organization of related information and awareness activities; implementation of environmental and social conditioning and control interventions; reduction of the harm already produced. Another objective of alcohol-related harm reduction strategies is to carry out primary prevention that favors informed choices and the adoption of healthy lifestyles, by proving that alcohol is a psychoactive substance.
The poisonous chemical found in beer plant nectar. When consumed with caution, it can induce pleasurable effects. If consumed excessively it can be very harmful, even fatal.
