If you are thinking about reducing your alcohol use or if you are worried about somebody else’s alcohol use there are places you can go for help.
Sometimes people don’t get help because they feel shame talking about how alcohol is affecting them and their families.
Aboriginal Alcohol and Drug Workers and other health professionals are there to help you. They will not put you down. They will listen and help you work out what you want to do. They can show you ways to reduce harm, cut down or stop using. They can help you access medical support, rehabilitation services, counselling and support.
It may not be easy reducing your alcohol use but your friends, family and other people in your community can support you to make changes.
