SETLALENTOA, Marilyn; RYKE, Elma  and  STRYDOM, Herman. Intervention strategies used to address alcohol abuse in the North West province, South Africa. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2015, vol.51, n.1, pp.80-100. ISSN 2312-7198.

One of the purposes of the Alcohol Sub-Study of the Prospective Urban and Rural Epidemiological (PURE) study was to identify the socio-economic effects of binge drinking from the perspective of community support networks and assess their intervention efforts to address the alcohol abuse problem in the selected areas of study. Emphasis was placed on implementation of plans and legislation; however, eradication of the problem seems to be insignificant for various reasons. This article reports on these identified challenges and proposes appropriate intervention strategies that take cognisance of the nature of the communities for which intervention efforts are intended.
