Alcohol is a beverage, but it is also dangerous and can cause many problems. Around 85% of people aged over 15 regularly drink beer, wine, fruit wine or spirits. Approximately every fifth person in Switzerland drinks too much alcohol and harms themselves as a result. Some constantly drink too much, others drink too much in one single setting (binge drinking).
Alcohol problems can destroy relationships and harm the development of children and young people. The family also suffers if someone is addicted to alcohol. It can be very expensive if alcohol is involved in a car accident. Information about these topics is available in podcasts, videos and brochures in various languages.

Regress – put simply
A road accident under the influence of alcohol can quickly become more expensive that you’d think, i.e. when the insurance company reclaims some of the payments from the insured person. See in this video what these kinds of recoveries mean and what consequences it can have.
