Commercial Host Liability

An evidence-based strategy

Food & Beverages

Commercial host liability is an evidence-based strategy to reduce excessive alcohol consumption and related harms.

ChangeLab Solutions created this infographic to provide an overview of how holding alcohol sellers liable for harms committed by intoxicated or underaged patrons works to reduce excessive consumption, as well as of the public health effects of that reduced consumption.

To learn more about this strategy, see the The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Prevention Status Reports (PSRs) Commercial Host (Dram Shop) Liability FAQ, and our related resources below.
