About

The  New  Directions  in  the  Study  of  Alcohol  Group  (NDSAG)  is  concerned  with  the use  and  misuse  of  alcohol  in society,  and  the  treatment  of  alcohol-related  problems.  Its  aim  is  to  promote  a  better  understanding  of these  topics.  The  Group  is  mainly  a  forum  for  debate;  where  anybody  concerned  with  helping  people  with drinking problems is encouraged to exchange ideas, share results and learn about new developments in the field.

The current focus and scope of the organisation is currently under review given significant challenges facing the sector at large. To find out more please get in touch.
