At the Amy Winehouse Foundation we work with children and young people up to the age of 30. But if you are older than that there are many trusted organisations that can help you.
You can ask for help from your GP, by calling 111 or 999 (in an emergency) charities, community services and peer support networks such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous or Smart Recovery.
Below is a list of phone numbers and websites that will help you to find the support you need:
