Alcohol and Substance Misuse

Alcohol:

Men should not regularly drink more than 3 – 4 units of alcohol a day

Women should not regularly drink more than 2 – 3 units a day

‘Regularly’ means drinking every day or most days of the week. For further information to help you calculate your units visit http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/alcohol/Pages/Alcoholhome.aspx 

Nottinghamshire Recovery Partnership offers interventions to help people who have a problem with their alcohol use; we offer prompt access to specialist assessment and therapeutic interventions. Our initial interventions focus on providing the following information:

  • Advice and information about units of alcohol, and recommended safe limits
  • Advice about safe reduction, and monitoring drinking
  • The health and social effects of excess drinking
  • Support and motivation to achieve set goals – including support for family members
  • Lapse/relapse prevention. Access to specialist prescribed interventions when appropriate
  • Referral to other appropriate agencies for specialist support

Frequency of appointments is negotiated between the worker and client.

We provide a wide range of interventions in our Recovery Centres and also provide many other clinics across Nottinghamshire (these run in some GP surgeries and other places); our aim is to be easy to access; as such we aim to offer initial appointments as quickly as possible and to have clinics available in a variety of locations to make it as easy for people to get to as possible.

Our Recovery Centres welcome people calling in for advice or to refer themselves and are based at:

  • Mansfield Recovery Centre - The Maltings 3-5 Beech Avenue, Mansfield NG18 1EY
  • Ashfield Recovery Centre - Care of Ashfield Medical Centre, King Street, Sutton In Ashfield NG17 1AT

Alternatively referrals can be made by clients themselves, or referred by other professionals by contacting 0800 5200500.
