Support & Useful Links - Alcohol

Realising you have a problem with alcohol is the first step to getting better, but it is often the hardest one.

You may need help if:

  • You always feel the need to have a drink. 
  • You get into trouble because of your drinking.
  • Other people warn you about how much you’re drinking.


Talk to your GP

A good place to start is with your GP. Be honest with them about how much you drink. Your GP may refer you to a local community alcohol service.


Useful links

Information to support you to cut down or stop drinking is available through a number of national websites. Some of the key sites are provided below while for those that need it there is local support.
