Bristol: Women’s Independent Alcohol Support (WIAS)

There is a new service user led helpline for women with alcohol issues, this is in addition to the small women’s support groups in the centre and at Filwood.

Women have said that they value an opportunity to talk about their alcohol problems, especially with other women service users who have recovered themselves. They are often reluctant to disclose their issues to the health services, or in mixed-sex groups.

There will be signposting to other specialist services when appropriate to ensure up to date information is offered.

Helpline 0117 942 8077, open Wednesdays 6-10 p.m. from January 2016
