I see Clinton Snelling is violating his Asbo. He's been seen swaying around outside the Leicester Road stores, with a hood up to try and hide his identity. Is this man getting any help, because I don't think he's able to comply with an Asbo when he's so completely off his face.

With chronic under funding in programmes to help individuals with mental health issues and/or drink/drug addictions, its no surprise we're seeing repeat offenses. Cuts to benefits is probably exacerbating the problems to. This is the price we pay if we make these cuts and follow myopic strategies to save a few quid in the short term....more antisocial behaviour, people going round in circles with addictions, mental health issues not addressed properly, reliance on food banks, and increase in homelessness. The turning point was 2010 (even when there was room for improvement), and now its spiraling out of control. The costs of picking up the pieces (be they financial or social) never seems to be factored in these policy decisions.
By all means, if incarcerating the man will help the community in the short term, then do so, but it would also help enormously if prisons had the capacity and also the support/skills to help rehabilitate him so that he doesn't end up re-offending when he is released.

Fear not Jonjo, I'm sure there will be plenty of posts you can approve of that will follow in this thread, which satisfies your entertainment need for this topic. Mainly with keywords and phrases thrown in for good measure such as "scumbag", "loser", "bloody do-gooders", "lock em up and throw away the key", "teach em a lesson" and "bleedin' well take responsibility for his own actions" and other such predictable responses. I get that may be the desired approach for some here, but there isn't much evidence to suggest it works for the wider society, victims or the "scumbags" we're attempting to reform (or destroy).

He is still served alcohol at Leicester Rd shops. Very unpleasant to watch someone being helped to destroy themselves.
Really sad to see this guy around Lewes. There is growing problem of alcoholism on the streets of Lewes which is being Ignored by the Council...

Services for people with alcohol problems locally don't seem to be as effective as they used to be.
My understanding is that the last time the service was re-tendered, alcohol and drug addiction services were lumped together in one contract. Anecdotally, it seems that the service providers devote a lot more time/money/energy or all three to heroin addiction rather than alcohol dependency. There's nothing like the service for problem drinkers that was provided by Action for Change.
Someone I know who is alcohol dependent just has a fortnightly appointment where he's told he shouldn't drink. Not very helpful.
