Many people in the UK have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol; it is estimated that there are 595,000 adults with alcohol dependence in England. As well as harming individuals, this can also harm children and families. As of 2014/15 it was estimated that in England 189,119 children were living with at least one alcoholdependent adult and between 14,390 and 32,887 children were living with two alcohol-dependent adults. It has been estimated that 4% of children live with a parent who is both a problem drinker and a drug user. In Scotland, up to 51,000 children are estimated to be living with a parent or carer with an alcohol problem.
