It’s here once again – Alcohol Awareness Week.

Knocking back the booze?


You’ve got far too much to lose!

Alcohol Awareness Week
17-23 November 2014


So why do people drink? Well it usually starts out with using alcohol as a way of unwinding after a stressful week – or when having a few drinks with friends. And while men are not meant to drink more than 3-4 alcohol units a day, women should not drink more than 2-3 units. But a lot of people don’t know what units actually mean in terms of what they drink – and therefore don’t know when they’re drinking too much! Find out how much you are drinking by using your very own alcohol unit calculator – you may be surprised at the results!

Before long drinking habits can spiral out of control.

You might have a problem with alcohol?

Have family members or friends expressed concerns that you’re drinking too much? Then it’s time to listen and talk about the health risks, social problems and stigmas associated with drinking.
Or are you finding it difficult to cope with someone else’s drinking?

Is it causing you anxiety and worry? Are you concerned about their health, well-beingand destructive actions? Do you Fear for their Life expectancy? Perhaps you are feeling depressed, lonely, isolated, lost and angry. Are you struggling with the stresses and strains of life? Are you struggling with uncertainty and crisis? Do you want to experience strength and hope, to empower you to create change in your own life?

Davina’s Ark – We Believe…

We believe that families are the silent majority of those negatively impacted by addiction. Our programme will strengthen and empower families in the process of their own recovery.

Often, a family cannot cope with the impact of addiction on their own. Family support services can help you to acknowledge some of the problems and feelings you may be experiencing.

Davina’s Ark provides assistance with intervention for families, in relation to their loved one, the person in addiction. We train and provide specialised support with families to undertake a successful intervention.

We guide and coach the family through the process by educating the family about addiction, co-dependency and its impact on the family as a whole. This invites family members to make life changes and to create healthy boundaries which may initiate changes in the individual in addiction.
