NHS Advice on drinking recommends that men should not regularly drink more than 3-4 units of alcohol a day and women should not regularly drink more than 2-3 units a day. “Regularly” means drinking every day or most days of the week.

ARC Hounslow is a service provided in partnership by CNWL and Phoenix Futures as a free and confidential service for people who live in the London Borough of Hounslow.
The service helps people break a cycle of addiction to substances such as heroin, cocaine, and new psychoactive substance as well as long term alcohol addiction. Many people turn to drink or drugs as a way of dealing with negative feelings, such as depression, stress, trauma or anxiety.
We work with people at any stage of their alcohol or drug difficulties to provide a single point of access to assessment and treatment for problems.
We recognise the importance of providing treatment for both the substance misuse problem, as well as any associated emotional / mental health issues.
The service is funded by Hounslow Council Public Health.
