The Impact of Alcohol programme is a confidential, one to one counselling/mentoring service. It is for individuals 18 years and over whom may have  alcohol related problems.

Impact of Alcohol programme is delivered across the Southern Health and Social Care Trust area and is funded by Big Lottery.

Impact of Alcohol is a Northern Ireland wide programme; we are currently covering the Southern Trust area. We aim to encourage a community-based approach to address the harm caused by alcohol misuse. This service is part of a Southern area portfolio of projects that will achieve the following outcome:

“To reduce the harm to individuals, families and communities directly affected by alcohol misuse” 


Why do people gamble, how can you stop, is it an addiction?

Why we are delivering this programme.

Alcohol misuse/dependence is a major problem within our society and is something that has ruined many people’s lives and the lives of their families due to lack of support provisions.
