What to expect
When you've made the decision to get help with your drinking, our priority is to get you the personalised support you need.
Within 24 hours of making contact with us, you will receive a full assessment of your needs. Through talking with a member of our recovery team, they will be able to gain a deep understanding of your current levels of drinking and how they will be able to support you.
After your full assessment we will create a clear plan of action for your recovery.
If you are dependent on alcohol we will organise an appointment with a healthcare professional. This will help us to make sure you are safe and well throughout your recovery journey. One of our nurses will contact you and your appointment will take place within 5 days of first contacting us.
Your own recovery worker
We tailor our support to meet your individual needs. Within 5 working days, you have access to a recovery worker who will guide you in your recovery journey.
Access to experts
You will be invited to attend group meetings and workshops. We offer a wide range of groups including peer-led support groups to courses that focus on the psychological aspects of your behaviour.
Experts by experience
Some of our recovery workers know exactly what you're going through as they've been in your shoes. Our team of recovery workers is experienced to offer you the right support for your needs. Some of our team have experienced alcohol problems firsthand and have been in your shoes before.
Do you think you might be drinking too much?
We're here to support you with your levels of drinking. If you are concerned about how much you are drinking, please take our alcohol quiz. The quiz will take a couple of minutes to complete.
We will ask you how much you are drinking on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. We will also ask you about your behaviour when you drink.
At the end of the quiz we will provide guidance based on your levels drinking. This might include visiting your GP, contacting us or speaking to our online team.
Are you a parent?
Children are affected by the things they hear, witness and experience.
If you are going through recovery or wanting to seek help with your drinking, you may want to consider some independent support for your child.
