People experiencing alcohol or drug problems often try to hide the symptoms and play down the extent of their problem. Watch out for the following warning signs that can show that something may be wrong:
If someone is having problems (whether or not they are related to drink or drugs), often the first step to getting help is support from a friend, a family member, or a colleague. You may be nervous about raising the issue, but if it means they get help sooner it will have been worth it.
If you are worried about someone who is using drugs and/or alcohol, bring them to the Kingston Wellbeing Service for joint advice and support.
