Alcohol Information

You can call Surrey Drug and Alcohol Care Ltd 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to discuss any concerns you have about either your own, or someone else’s drinking. We can talk to you about the services that are available in Surrey to help you.

In Surrey, it is estimated that more than a quarter of adults who drink alcohol, drink above what are considered safe levels. This means that they are putting themselves at risk of developing health problems in the future due to their drinking. Regularly drinking too much alcohol can have severe effects on your health. Drinking more than your recommended daily units of alcohol significantly increases your risk of developing over sixty diseases and your mental health and social life are also affected.

Visit Drinkcoach and “Take the Alcohol Test”. Remember to say if you live in Surrey. Completion of the test and taking the test will point to the SDAC helpline and how we can help you, on almost every page.
