Event description

Description

Brief intervention is an opportunistic, short, conversation which supports people to make lifestyle changes. It is not counselling or treatment and can be delivered part of normal practice.


The intention of a brief intervention is to encourage a person misusing alcohol to review their drinking, to set themselves drinking limits and to make and act on decisions to reduce their hazardous drinking.

Controlled trials indicate on average, for every eight people drinking at hazardous levels who receive an alcohol brief intervention, one will reduce their drinking to within safer drinking limits as a result of a brief intervention.
