Thank you. Your choice has been saved. You can change your preferences at any time.
Many of us like to unwind with a nice glass of something. But it’s funny how drink sneaks up on us. The odd glass in the evening can quickly become two or three regular glasses, most evenings. Too much alcohol is bad news for your appearance, odour, brain, heart, liver and your relationships.
If you think you have a problem with drinking, we're here to help.
If you seem to be having trouble with your drinking, or if your drinking has reached the point of where it worries you, you may be interested to know something about Alcoholics Anonymous and the AA programme of recovery from alcoholism.
The Lambeth Addiction Treatment Consortium at Lorraine Hewitt House offers support to anyone over the age of 18 with alcohol or drug problems who lives in Lambeth or has strong connections to the borough. When you visit us for the first time you will be provided with a key worker who will work with you to formulate a care plan and support you throughout your time with us.
