The   New   Directions   in   the   Study   of   Alcohol   Group   (NDSAG)    is   concerned   with   the   use   and   abuse   of   alcohol   in society,   and   the   treatment   of   people   with   alcohol-related   problems.   Its   aim   is   to   promote   a   better   understanding   of these   topics.   The   Group   is   mainly   a   forum   for   debate;   where   anybody   concerned   with   helping   people   with   drinking problems is encouraged to exchange ideas, share results and learn about new developments in the field. The   main   focus   of   NDSAG   activity   is   the   Annual   Conference,   a   series   of   presentations,   debates   and   networking spread over three or four days. We also produce a journal based upon key presentations from the conference. To get a taste of the quality of speakers at NDSAG conferences, you should visit the excellent FEAD website  which has video footage and interviews with some of the speakers at our recent conferences. Past programmes are also available on our archive blog (see “History” link above). We are currently working to make our journal archive available to members as PDF (see “Journal” link above). .

Membership has been reviewed from 2017 onwards
The New Directions in the Study of Alcohol Group (NDSAG) is a membership organisation, which anyone with an interest in the alcohol field is invite to join. Following a decision at our 2016 AGM, current membership runs from each AGM, and is part of the conference fees. Thereafter, there will be no annual membership fee and membership will be conveyed to anyone attending our annual conference. Existing members who do not attend a conference will continue to be kept informed of NDSAG activities and have access to any membership areas of the website which are planned (eg our journal archives).
