Drugs and Alcohol
Over 50s Alcohol Helpline
The alcohol, drug and mental health charity With You recently commissioned a poll that found 1 in 2 adults aged over 50 are drinking at a level that could cause them health problems now, or in the future. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, this is likely to be further impacted.
With You has launched an over 50s Alcohol Helpline providing support and advice to individuals aged over 50 or those concerned about someone else over 50’s drinking.
The service is available 7 days a week; Monday to Friday at 12pm – 8pm and 10am to 4pm at weekends.
The helpline phone number is 0808 801 0750.
