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.
