1. Reducing exposure to alcohol in the home

Take a look around your home

  • How visible is alcohol?
  • How accessible is alcohol?

Consider your family, friends and regular visitors to your place including children, young people, anyone who is pregnant or wishing to become pregnant, anyone who is experiencing or has experienced alcohol-related conditions.

Consider how you could reduce visibility and accessibility of alcohol such as storing alcohol in cupboards, higher locations, etc.

If you are comfortable doing so, you can discuss these issues with members of your family/whānau and other groups you are associated with, and assist them in making their homes safer.

You could talk with your family/whānau about making your home an alcohol-free zone.
