2011 Alcohol Guidelines - Alcohol


WHAT ARE THESE ALCOHOL GUIDELINES ALL ABOUT? These alcohol guidelines are pieces of advice that tell you how much you can drink (if you choose to drink) and still minimise damage to your body. The new guidelines are different to the previous guidelines that were written in 2004. They have been simplified, so we now have 4 guidelines instead of 12. This is because we are talking about a lifetime of risks. This can be confusing but basically there are different guidelines for different people with different drinking issues. Many people believe that there are no safe levels of drinking. In their view, drinking any amount of alcohol puts you at some risk. Some of the health, social and emotional costs of drinking alcohol are referred to in this booklet. Who is this resource for? This booklet has been written for health workers and drug and alcohol workers. It has been written in the "first person" so that health workers and drug and alcohol workers can read the information directly to their clients. It's important for Australians to be clear about what the NHMRC is actually saying in these guidelines. The guidelines state that if you - as an adult - have more than two standard drinks on any one day - then on the best evidence available you begin to increase the risk of incurring harm. Consumption of one or two standard drinks carries a one-in-one-hundred (1 in 100)¹ risk of incurring harm, and the risk rises with each subsequent drink.

2004 The Australian Alcohol Guidelines for Indigenous Communities - Alcohol

2004 The Australian Alcohol Guidelines for Indigenous Communities - AlcoholIn 2004, the Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Council (SA) Inc. was approached by the Department of Health and Ageing to redevelop the Alcohol and Your Health: Australian Alcohol Guidelines to make them more culturally appropriate for Indigenous Communities.

After a number of workshops in remote, rural and urban settings with Indigenous drug, alcohol and health workers we were able to adapt and reproduce the guidelines in a more appropriate form.

The Alcohol Education Rehabilitation Foundation gave ADAC a small grant to enable us to print these resources and also to develop a flipchart to compliment the package. The Alcohol and Your Health: Australian Alcohol Guidelines for Indigenous Communities goes through all 12 Guidelines. These have been written in the first personĚ so that health workers and drug and alcohol workers can read the information directly to their clients.

Also included is the Alcohol Screen (AUDIT), which the health workers and/ or drug and alcohol workers can use in their dealings with clients. A copy of what is a standard drink handout on Alcohol can cause Health Problems, a quick A4 guide to the Guidelines and a A4 handout that health workers and drug and alcohol workers can use with both male and female clients so they can together work out what, if any problems the clients drinking is causing.

If you would like to order a copy of the flipchart (Alcohol and Your Health) please complete the attached order form and return to ADAC. To order copies of the booklet, please contact Geoffrey Hawkins at geoffrey@adac.org.au
