This programme is run over 5 weeks, weekly for 1.5 hours at scheduled intervals throughout the year. If the programme has commenced before your start date we will offer you one to one support for several weeks until you can enroll in the next scheduled course.

The target group is wide-ranging - from individuals who are concerned about the amount they drink or the frequency they drink but are not sure if they have a problem, to people who have identified they have an issue and feel it will be helpful to learn more about alcohol and what it is doing to them. All groups are run so people have time to discuss and ask questions about the topic of the week.


The topics that are included in the programme are:


• What does alcohol do for us?

• How alcohol affects you Physically, Mentally, Emotionally.

• Alcohol and the Family.

• How we can make changes when living with Alcohol Problems?

• The process of Addiction.


The programme is structured in such a way that participants can join on any week. The sessions take place on a Thursday at 10.00 am – 11.30 am. Please contact a member of staff on 01 454 9772 or email for more information.
