Alcohol Advice

The recommended weekly limit of alcohol intake is 21 units for men and 14 units for women. A unit is half a pint of beer, a glass of wine or a single measure of spirits. Research in 2005 suggested that almost 1 in 5 Islington residents were drinking more than the recommended weekly limit. If you are worried that you or someone you know may be drinking too much we can arrange for you to meet a specialist alcohol adviser at our monthly PPCC alcohol advice clinic. Local residents may also contact Camden & Islington Alcohol Advisory Service which offers assessment and treatment for people with alcohol related problems.
