Alcohol Treatment Services
Persons can avail of either outpatient or residential treatment. Research strongly suggests that there is little difference in effectiveness between both (Institute of Medicine 1989, Miller et al 1995). Which is chosen is often a matter of personal choice.
The HSE provides public alcohol treatment services in the region. Services are catchment area based, which means the service you can access, depends on where you live. More detailed information is below.
