Coalition for the Prevention of Alcohol Problems

The Coalition for the Prevention of Alcohol Problems vigorously promotes a temperance agenda and should more accurately be called the Coalition for the Prevention of Alcohol. It is a coalition of temperance groups co-chaired by George Hacker of the Alcohol Policies Project and Stacia Murphy of the National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence (NCADD).

Members of the Coalition for the Prevention of Alcohol Problems include the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU), the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon Church), the American Council on Alcohol Problems (earlier called the Anti-Saloon League), the Temperance League of Kentucky, the General Board of Global Ministries, and the Illinois Church Action on Alcohol Problems.

The Coalition's Steering Committee meets regularly in Washington to set its agenda and plan it's political strategy. Its agenda is neo-prohibitionist and currently emphasizes, among other goals, dramatically increasing taxes on alcoholic beverages, restricting and prohibiting the advertising of alcohol, and promoting taxpayer-supported anti-alcohol print, radio and television ads.

The Coalition for the Prevention of Alcohol Problems is headquartered at 1875 Connecticut Avenue in Washington, D.C.
