Binge drinkers get help

17th October 2007

Binge drinkers arrested for alcohol-related crime are to be given advice and counselling in a scheme to be trialled in four parts of England.

The “alcohol-arrest referral projects� operated by the Home Office will run in Manchester, Liverpool, Cheshire and west London until March 2008. Once arrested, an offender’s drinking habits will be assessed and if police judge that alcohol played a part the person can be given advice there and then about unit strengths and the effects of alcohol on the body.
