"Booze abuse costs Britain a staggering £21 billion a year.

These shocking figures expose just where our problem's biggest.

We've got to now make sure councils and health chiefs have proper plans in place to put treatment in reach of drinkers needing help.

No one should suffer with alcohol addiction alone - especially when it's parents with a problem."
