HOW PREVALENT IS THE ALCOHOL AND DRUG PROBLEM IN NEWCASTLE?
With the recent increase of drug and alcohol services in Newcastle upon Tyne this suggests that there is a genuine demand and need for addiction support services throughout the North East. This, coupled with daily arrests for alcohol and drug related crimes Newcastle is no different to any other major cities in the UK like Manchester, Liverpool and London all of which have a reputation for a drinking culture amongst locals and visitors such as stag or hen parties.
Both weekly and weekend binge drinking is becoming more and more apparent along with many Newcastle residents (Geordies) and city workers adopting a work hard play hard mentality.
