The primary aim of Hungarian alcohol policy is on the one hand limitations on availability and on the other hand restrictions with respect to use. Prohibition is an extreme form and an alcohol-free society is not a realizable aim as such. This present document naturally does not declare an overall, population-wide sobriety as a target. At the same time, the best is done to decrease the severity of alcohol problem in our country, making use of the results of scientific research on the field of alcohology.
