Drink responsibly 

Are you concerned about how drinking alcohol impacts upon your life?

Would you like to talk to someone about your drinking habits?

Most people are unaware of the harm they could be causing by their social drinking. Most people who have alcohol-related health problems aren’t alcoholics. They are simply people who are regularly drinking more than the recommended levels for some years.

The Wellbeing Service are here for you to talk to about how and why you drink, you can contact us on 01472 325500 to have an informal chat about any concerns or questions that you may have.

The information provided below is to support people to understand what risks alcohol may have on a person’s health and to help in making decisions about their consumption of alcohol.
