Doncaster Drug & Alcohol Service

 

A service for residents of Doncaster concerned about their own or a family members drinking

 Our staff team are experienced and skilled in assisting people to challenge and overcome the troubles caused by problem drinking.

 

When you first contact us we will offer you an appointment to see one of the members of our assessment team. This takes about half an hour and during the session you will be asked about your drinking and what concerns you have; how drinking affects your personal situation, health, work and social life, family life and relationships and finances. We will ask what you want to achieve and what your goals are, focussing on strengths and positives, and this inofrmation will help the assessor and you consider the best way forward.

 

We provide a wide range of activities and therapies that can help you to recover from the problems that alcohol misuse has brought about.

ALCOHOL IS THE SINGLE BIGGEST CAUSE OF ACCIDENTS AT HOME

  

Research suggests that nationally more than 50% of fire fatalities within the home involve drink or drug-related behaviour and of the 4,000 fatal accidents that happen in homes in the UK every year, 400 are alcohol-related.

 

Public Health in association with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service have produced a film approximately 3 minutes long focussing on alcohol and fires in the home.
