This guidance has been drawn up by Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP), at the request of the Scottish Government. It provides recommendations for Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADPs), Commissioners, Alcohol Service Managers, Community Services and Mutual Aid and Support Groups, to enable them to reduce risks and ensure continued support for people with alcohol-related problems in the context of COVID-19.

Section five suggests advice that can be offered to heavy drinkers who are thinking about cutting back or stopping drinking alcohol in the current circumstances. COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving pandemic with national advice and guidance updated regularly. This document is accurate at point of publication. It will be reviewed as necessary, with updates being issued as and when required. This guidance is intended to support and not to contradict or replicate any local contingency plans that are in place.
