Doctors are to be given special training to spot people who drink too much, the government has said.
It says that within three years, all medical schools in England will have alcohol training on the curriculum.
It comes after a leading doctor said people should be fined £100 for being drunk in public.
The government says there are around 10 million people in England who are causing themselves serious harm because of the amount they drink.
In all, 60,000 medical students will be trained over the next decade.
