For most people, alcohol is part of a balanced and healthy life. However, it is all too easy to drink too much, and too often.

How we can help

​Alcohol is a big part of our culture and society. It might not seem like you are drinking too much, but even having just one or two drinks most nights can do serious harm to your health, both physically and mentally.

Public Health Northamptonshire work with STAR (Drug and Alcohol Support) to offer support and advice to anyone that may have concerns, however minor, for themselves or for someone else’s drinking or drug use.

STAR offer a free confidential assessment by a specially trained member of staff who will help you access the right support from the different drug and alcohol agencies available.


Did you know that drinking three pints of beer in one sitting is classified as binge drinking? Or that one standard glass of wine a night is considered dangerous drinking?

To access your free and confidential assessment, just call 0808 169 8512 between 9am and 4:30pm Monday to Friday.

STAR also operates a weekday walk-in service:
