Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) Program

What is the EUDL goal?

The Enforcement Underage Drinking Law (EUDL) goal is to reduce underage drinking in communities around the state of Maine by systematically implementing best or promising practices that attain the objectives of increasing the enforcement of underage drinking laws and enhancing research-based prevention planning. The EUDL program helps the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the 5 U.S territories preventing underage drinking by emphasizing law enforcement. 


The EUDL program is designed to:

* Improve Maine's system for analyzing underage drinking data to guide strategic planning.
 * Strengthening a statewide Underage Drinking Enforcement Task Force, and
 * Systematically increasing the effective and visible enforcement of underage drinking laws through enhanced research based prevention and intervention programming

Community-Based Programs

 The EUDL program works closely with the community and works to provide programs to teens. They provide prevention strategies at the local level through alcohol beverage enforcement agencies, law enforcement, schools, employers, medical and health care professionals, and through community coalitions.
