Depending on the final score, pharmacies will provide confidential one to one brief advice including identification of units of alcohol, identification of the harms associated with their level of drinking, advice on the benefits of reducing levels of drinking. In order to motivate individuals to take positive action and modify their drinking levels.
The pharmacy will signpost to specialist services for those whose drinking levels may indicate dependency.
