Alberta’s DrinkSense

In Alberta, alcohol is so much a part of social events that it is not usually thought of as a drug. However, alcohol is a drug and it is the drug used the most in Alberta. 76% of Albertans drink alcohol. However, the good news is the large majority drink responsibly. The proportion that drink harmfully varies by age group.
