Alcohol and Drugs

Problems with alcohol and drugs.

Regularly drinking more than 14 units a week risks damaging your health.

Fourteen units is equivalent to six pints of average-strength beer or 10 small glasses of low-strength wine.  

Drug misuse can be harmful to your health in both the short term and the long term, and could possibly lead to addiction.

Our Support Workers will provide basic information on drugs and alcohol and their effects. We can undertake an assessment of your alcohol consumption and the potential impacts on your health, and can provide some brief intervention suggestions to support change. We will also work with the specialist substance misuse provider in the county to provide seamless and effective support.

Contact the Rutland Community Wellbeing Service on 01572 725805 or complete the online referral form to access help and support.

Turning Point is dedicated to promoting wellbeing and recovery from addiction when you feel ready to take those steps. They provide effective person-centred treatment to individuals with drug and alcohol dependency, enabling individuals to move towards abstinence as part of their recovery journey.

Self help organisations and resources are also available from Turning Point.
