Alcohol dependency

alcohol dependancy

It is important to be able to spot the warning signs that you may need assistance because of your drinking.  Here are some of the indicators:

  • If you cannot control when you start or stop drinking
  • If you cannot control how much you drink
  • If you suffer nausea, vomiting and headaches after drinking
  • If you are verbally or physically abusive
  • If you are unable to meet family, personal and work commitments after drinking
  • If you suffer legal or financial problems as a result of your drinking
  • If your doctor, family members, friends or workmates have told you that they are worried about your drinking.

Even if only a few of these indicators apply to you, you may have a problem with alcohol.

It is our policy to offer support to any employee who has a problem associated with the consumption of alcohol.

Any employee who believes or suspects that they may have a problem is encouraged to discuss this, confidentially, with their line manager or a member of the Human Resources Department. You will be offered appropriate support, which may include a referral to our Employee Assistance Program for advice and counselling.
