Binge drinkers get help17th 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 â€śalcohol-arrest referral projectsâ€? operated by the Home Office will run in Manchester, Liverpool, Cheshire and west London until March 2008. Once arrested, an offenderâ€™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.
