Alcohol reduction support
Is drink sneaking up on you?
Drinking alcohol is a commonly accepted lifestyle choice but can have devastating impact on individuals and families if it gets out of control.
If you think your drinking is getting out of hand our Wellbeing Alcohol Reduction Adviser can help. They can give clear support to help you plan how to decrease your drinking to a safer level or even quit drinking if you wish.
Our Alcohol Wellbeing Advisor is able to offer up to six, one-to-one sessions, with clients that are concerned about their drinking levels or where alcohol is becoming problematic in their lives. During the sessions we would assess current levels of drinking by using the Audit C screening tool to help identify what level of risk someone is drinking at and SADQ (Severity of Alcohol Dependence Questionnaire) which is a tool to signify if someone has a mild, moderate or severe dependance on alcohol. These tools are used to be able to identify what areas need to be focused on and set goals around reduction of drinking and reducing the risk of alcohol-related harm.
Whilst working with a client specifically around their drinking we would be able to explore any other areas of support they feel would be of benefit and refer internally to other wellbeing services or partner organisations as and when appropriate.

This is a stressful time and in times of stress we can find ourselves drinking more often or more heavily. On top of that, many of our routines will have changed, which might make it hard to keep on top of how much we’re drinking.
If you think that you are drinking too much, there are lots of options to support you to take back control.
