Alcohol Awareness Week talks in Blackburn

First published in News

PEOPLE in East Lancashire are being encouraged to discuss their drinking habits during Alcohol Awareness Week.

The campaign, organised by Alcohol Concern and supported by Blackburn with Darwen Council and the Care Trust Plus, is called ‘It’s time to talk about drinking’.

It recognises that talking about drinking is something the British do but questions whether we are having the right kind of conversations.

During the week Blackburn with Darwen’s Alcohol and Drug Service on Regent Street, Blackburn, will be providing information to visitors about the dangers of alcohol abuse.

A series of awareness events will take place during the week including an alcohol support day on Friday at the Women’s Centre on Strawberry Bank, Blackburn.

It will run from 1pm until 3pm.

Director of public health for Blackburn with Darwen, Dominic Harrison, said: “Unfortunately the social problems alcohol causes are all around us, as well as the massive health impacts it can have.”
