As the rate of alcohol abuse in Singapore is lower than in other countries, the alcohol rehab options are few. As Singapore becomes more prosperous, the rate of alcohol consumption has increased. Strict drinking laws are in place, forbidding alcohol consumption by under 18s, taxing alcohol heavily, and banning drunkenness in public.
This can lead to a stigma surrounding problem drinking and prevent individuals from getting help. Alcohol abuse and addiction in Singapore has a hugely negative impact on individuals, their families and on their workplace environment.
