With its location on the North Sea and its plethora of oil companies, Aberdeen has traditionally been a booming city, even when the rest of the UK has suffered from a downturn in the economy.
However, it is a small city of 195,000 inhabitants and the livelihood of many residents is deeply dependent on the fluctuating price of oil.
Since 2016 oil prices have plummeted, bringing an economic downturn upon the local economy of Aberdeen, with 65,000 jobs lost in 2015.
All of this is the perfect breeding ground for alcohol problems among executives and professionals which often surface when people are faced with job losses, financial pressure and career instability, leading to low self-esteem, stress and depression.
Research in 2016 by NHS Grampian revealed that more than 40% of adults in Aberdeen drink more than the recommended weekly limits with 26% of the population of the north-east of Scotland now consuming enough alcohol to be considered hazardous and harmful.
Alcohol addiction has a hugely negative impact on individuals, their families and on their workplace environment.
