Did you know that understanding you have a problem with alcohol is the first step to getting the help you need? 

You might need help with alcohol if you often feel you need to drink it. You might get into trouble because you have been drinking, or you might think that drinking alcohol is causing you problems. Other people might also have mentioned how much you are drinking. Each of these factors could indicate that you have a problem with alcohol. The next step is to get help and support.
