New Lambeth service to help people manage their drinking

Lambeth Council has launched a new online service called DrinkCoach – this service will help residents understand the risks associated with their drinking and what services are available to give advice and support.
A quarter of Lambeth residents binge drink at least once a week and 38% of adults drink more than the recommended 14 units per week – higher than the national average. This has led to an increase in alcohol-related hospital admissions.
By answering 12 simple questions, users can understand their drinking receive advice and information on local face-to-face support.
The test only takes two minutes to complete and is confidential.
