Alcohol consumption is a contested topic that attracts heated policy debate among key stakeholders at all levels of societies given the magnitude of its impact especially on general health and safety. But there are still very limited studies that focus on a selected vulnerable cohort of alcohol and paying full attention to it in terms of cumulative studies towards evidence-based intervention. This study, therefore, serves to prepare grounds for scoping, systematic and meta-analysis on alcohol, social group, young adults and the potential of telehealth to serve as reliable care intervention for the high-risk. Our initial findings suggest that rurality, age and social groups are potential mapping concepts for scoping reviews.
