Please jump for Alcohol Concern to help us achieve our goal of improving lives by reducing the harm caused by alcohol.
We want to live in a world where people can manage the risks and make sense of alcohol.
Alcohol is a complex issue. Alcohol is legal and people enjoy drinking. We are not anti-alcohol. However the evidence is clear: alcohol can cause a range of health problems such as stroke, cancers, high blood pressure and heart disease, and is associated with many different types of crime such as violence and antisocial behaviour. While some people can enjoy alcohol moderately and within recommended guidelines, for others alcohol can be a devastating addiction and effectively destroy their lives. It is estimated that over 1.6 million people in the UK are living with an alcohol addiction.
