The researcher will recommends the following. There should be sensitization and awareness raising about the dangers associated to with alcoholism. Community leaders should ensure that all recreational centers that tend to turn the area into a slum should be shut down. Persons bellow 18years of age strictly should not be allowed to take alcohol.
