Alcohol Problems & Substance Misuse Training

Please find information and booking links below for the courses within our Alcohol Problems and Substance Misuse Training offer:


Alcohol Identification and Brief Advice (IBA)

This training aims to give staff the confidence to raise the issue, knowledge of how to help people check their alcohol intake level, the tools to assess the risk level of someone’s drinking, and then how to help.

Staff in any services where alcohol is a common issue or a background factor for clients/customers, or families, and where someone may need help developing the motivation to change.

This is a free 3 and 1/2 hour course designed for front line staff who may come into contact with people with the potential indicators of alcohol problems.

“If consistently implemented across the UK, simple alcohol advice would result in 250,000 men and 67,500 women reducing their drinking levels from hazardous and harmful to low risk each year when delivered by competent, trained staff.”
