Alcohol and drugs

Drug or alcohol misuse leads to loss of control over our lives. It can impact on everything from our health and wellbeing, to work and relationships. So it’s important to be aware of the dangers.


Regularly drinking above recommended levels can be harmful, even if you don’t get drunk. Try this short test to see if your drinking is likely to cause problems.

Reducing your alcohol intake can seem difficult, especially if drinking is part of your routine or social life. You can be successful in cutting down your drinking if you follow some simple tips and tricks. Try the ‘Drink Aware’ tool and see how quickly you notice the benefits.


Drug misuse affects individuals, families and communities. If you, or someone close to you, are experiencing problems with drugs then you don’t need to face the problem alone. Getting the right information can be the first step to taking control and finding a way through. Try the Talk to Frank website as a starting point.
