As we approach 2024, many will be considering our new year’s resolution – and many of us will be considering cutting down our alcohol intake.

The North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System (NENC ICS) has an alcohol support service which is available to all #TeamGateshead colleagues, and provides access to a programme of six free and confidential 1-to-1 coaching sessions with a qualified alcohol treatment specialist.

Accessing the service is easy – just take the DrinkCoach Two Minute Test so the organisation can evaluate your risk and help understand your needs, and on completion you’ll be presented with a number of options – which will include a programme of support through DrinkCoach.

DrinkCoach users can also track the units, cost and calories of their drinking; create personalised plans to better manage intake and receive signposting to local support services.

Whether you’re looking to cut down on your drinking, go alcohol-free, lose weight, improve your physical health or otherwise  – DrinkCoach can help you to achieve your goals.

To begin your DrinkCoach journey, just take the two-minute alcohol test.
