Edinburgh and Lothian Council on Alcohol (ELCA) has a new service which provides telephone support to individuals who are concerned about their own alcohol use. We can offer an alcohol focussed telephone call lasting up to 30 minutes. You will receive 1 session a week for up to 4 weeks. During the sessions you will be given information and advice, consider your options and receive some support in making changes to your drinking. All you need is to have access to a phone at an arranged time and a place where you will have privacy and no distractions.
If you are interested in this service, you can self-refer by contacting ELCA on 0131 337 8188, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange the first session.
One of our trained counsellors will phone you back at an arranged time, so the service is free to them.
