Abstract

Outlines German experience of dealing with workplace alcoholism by a preventive approach. Programmes are usually companybased, have defined aims relating to public relations, motivation of staff and development and implementation of assistance to employees with dependence problems. Programming may involve individuals or groups (sometimes study groups). Opposition by superiors and a company culture with a positive attitude to alcohol are the major problems. Programmes must be long‐term and ways of developing them in response to change are outlined.
