This chapter discusses the modification of the drinking context. Drinking contexts refer to where people purchase and consume alcohol on the premises as commercial drinking establishments. Such establishments have long been the focus of preventive interventions not only because they are subject to regulation but also because they are often high-risk drinking settings for a number of alcohol-related problems, including heavy drinking, driving after drinking, and violence and injury. The high rate of problems in commercial drinking establishments make this drinking context a prime target for alcohol policies aimed at the prevention of alcohol-related problems.
