Although most people who consume alcohol do so in moderation and with a sensible regard for the consequences, there is a minority whose alcohol consumption brings harm not only to themselves but also to those around them including family, friends and work colleagues.

Alcohol related problems are widespread in the general community and therefore all organisations will have their share of staff who experience problems with alcohol. There is no reason to believe that any organisation is an exception. Rather than ignore the problem drinker until drastic measures such as dismissal are called for the University has put in place a positive policy which safeguards those who are willing to be helped.
