    DescriptionThe project coordinator for the Kalgoorlie Alcohol Action Project, Fredrik Velander, says binge drinking is common in Kalgoorlie.

    The dangers of binge drinking will be highlighted as part of this week's Drug Action Program in Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

    The national, week-long event began at the weekend with a sausage sizzle at St Barbara Square which included information sessions on drug use with a particular focus on alcohol.

    The project coordinator for the Kalgoorlie Alcohol Action Project, Fredrik Velander, says binge drinking is common in Kalgoorlie.

    "We have data that clearly indicates that levels of drinking in Kalgoorlie are significantly higher in Kalgoorlie than the rest of the state," he said.
