This perspective on alcohol-related problems requires that people resist the temptation to think in terms of opposed pairs: prohibition versus unlimited access, treatment versus prevention, education versus law enforcement.
Techniques drawn from the alcoholism perspective alone clearly cannot reach this widely distributed part of the problem. For one thing, it would be impossibly expensive to provide individually tailored treatment for the many millions of drinkers in America. It would also be inappropriate. Unlike the heaviest drinkers, more moderate drinkers are not individually at great risk of suffering from some sort of problem. They would resent being treated as if they were. A better and more practical way to reach the entire population of drinkers is through policies that can be thought of as preventive.
