Alcohol and Drugs

The misuse (including over-indulgence) of alcohol, illegal/legal substances or prescription medication can lead to many difficulties, including:-

  • problems with your health and well-being, your mood and mental health
  • relationship difficulties
  • your studies
  • money problems
  • other issues - such as problems with the Police

Other dependency issues e.g. gambling, shopping, exercise, television and computer games, and performance addiction can also cause considerable difficulties.

You are welcome to come to Sudent Services to talk to one of our Advisers or Counsellors, perhaps just for some initial advice or if you feel you want to take things further.  You can drop in to make an appointment either at The ASC (The Advice and Support Centre) at 79 North Street, or our offices at Eden Court on The Scores.   Alternatively, you can:-
