A new €1million detox service and treatment centre refurbishment in Co. Tipperary has offically been launched.
Aiséirí’s four bed residential detoxification centre, which is one of just a handful of such centres in Ireland, was officially opened by Minister for State for Communities and the National Drug Strategy, Catherine Byrne TD on Friday.
The investment was part-funded by a significant, generous and much-needed donation from The J.P.McManus Charitable Foundation along with the HSE.
The new high-quality residential centre, which will be staffed by a multidisciplinary team of professionals, will be open to self, family, GP, other voluntary and statutory agencies referrals for people who want to overcome their substance dependency and begin their road to recovery.
According to Paul Conlon, CEO of Aiséirí, the new centre would not have been possible without the generous donation from The JP McManus Charitable Foundation.
