Alcohol Misuse Prevention Initiative

The Alcohol Misuse Prevention Program works to reduce harmful alcohol use by young adults ages 18 to 25 by:

  • training staff at stores and restaurants on:
    • local and state alcohol laws
    • reducing alcohol sales to customers who are intoxicated/drunk
    • preventing sales to youth under 21
  • offering the “Think Before You Drink” prevention campaign
  • hosting community coalition meetings – open to any Frederick County resident
  • conducting compliance checks to make sure stores are following laws
  • improving local policies to reduce the harm of underage and binge drinking
