Drinking a moderate amount of alcohol will not do you any physical or psychological harm. However, for some people, social drinking can lead to heavier drinking, which can cause serious health problems.
The more alcohol you drink the greater your risk of causing various kinds of damage to your body.
Because of this, the NHS gives advice on sensible drinking based on evaluation of all the known risks.
When people have problems with their use of alcohol, a range of different treatments is available. A Single Entry and Assessment Point (SEAP) has been set up to make sure each person gets an appointment at the place that is best for them.
