About Alcohol Services

Alcohol plays an important and positive role in many aspects of British life. Drinking alcohol for most of us is associated with celebration and enjoyable social interaction. However alcohol has also become synonymous with drunken violence and disorder, vandalism and images of overcrowded accident and emergency departments dealing with the harms of excessive drinking.

Partners in Swindon recognise and share the public's concern that current levels of crime, disorder and ill health caused by alcohol are unacceptable. The financial and human costs of the misuse of alcohol to the Borough are significant. Alcohol misuse impacts upon the individual, the family and the community. The challenge we face is to encourage everyone who drinks alcohol to do so sensibly and safely, whilst ensuring that measures are in place to tackle the impacts of alcohol misuse. SDAAT now commission a diverse range of alcohol treatment services which are available to all Swindon residents.
