For practitioners

Find out more about the work we do with the people and services who provide support and treatment to people with alcohol problems, and those who commission them.

Everyone who wants help with their drinking should be able to access the support they need, without shame or stigma.

We do not provide treatment directly, but support those services that do and the people that commission them.

We are an independent voice for all those who are engaged in helping people towards recovery, whether treatment providers, voluntary groups, fellowships, specialist medics or researchers exploring more effective interventions.

We also use our knowledge and research to support practitioners on the ground, service managers, commissioners and national Government to put in place the most effective policies and practices.

We campaign for appropriate funding, share research about the most effective treatment methods, and work to reduce the stigma surrounding alcohol problems so that more people seek the help they need.
