This service is available 7 days a week. The Helpline is open Monday to Friday 12pm – 8pm and 10am to 4pm at weekends. The freephone number to call is 0808 801 0750.

If you can help promote the Over 50s Alcohol Helpline through your work with general practitioners it would be much appreciated. This could be by encouraging general practitioners to share the number on their surgery website, by displaying posters, by using the digital infographics on reception area monitors, or by directing over 50’s and concerned others to the With You website to make bookings. There is also an Over 50s alcohol health check on the With You website which GP’s may wish to encourage individuals to utilise as it offers a simple overview of risk and how alcohol impacts on health. This tool offers tailored advice for staying healthy as individuals get older.
