#Alcohol costs to society

Another in our Alcohol Awareness Week posts…..

Every single year alcohol costs the criminal justice system £11bn; enough to keep more than 260,000 police officers on our streets. Alcohol related liver disease is also rife in the UK – over the past ten years rates in people under 30 suffering from the condition have increased by 112%.

Worst of all our children are also at risk; almost 80,000 babies in the UK are living with somebody who has a problem with alcohol, and a fifth of all young callers to Childline are worried about the drinking of a parent.
