Community Alcohol Programme (CAP)

Offers support to those affected by problematic alcohol use eg. those who drink heavily or on a regular basis and whose persistent drinking interferes with their health, relationships, employment or other key aspects of their lives.

Pre-entry is Thursday 10.30am-1pm. The Alcohol Programme runs for 20 weeks every Monday and Friday 11am-2pm and Wednesday 2pm-4pm. The programme consists of two groups per week, one peer led meeting, key working, and care planning and an Aftercare programme that runs on Thursday 7pm-8.30pm.
