Drug and alcohol abuse

What you can do if you are affected by drug or alcohol abuse

If you or someone you know has a drug or alcohol problem, there are organisations that can give you help and support.

A good first step is to read guidance from the Drink Aware website, which includes help if you want:

  • to reduce your drinking
  • advice for someone else
  • helpful tools to help you reduce your drinking

For help to beat drug abuse, the Frank website includes advice on what to do if you are concerned about:

  • your drug use
  • a friend's drug use
  • what happens during drug treatment

You can also find more support with drug and alcohol addition.

We can also help you make a report if you're a victim or drug or alcohol related crime.
