24/7 Helpline

​For the financial year 2021-2022, there were 3,092 clients seeking help from statutory services in N. Ireland. More than a third of these clients were seeking help for alcohol: only. Another third sought help for drug use and the remainder: both drugs and alcohol (945 clients) The majority of those seeking help were male. 

43% of those seeking help were between 26 and 39 years of age and this age group were mainly seeking help for drug dependency whereas 40.4% were over 40 years old and seeking help only for alcohol. In terms of drug use, cannabis  (62%)was the drug most commonly identified as the one help was sought for, followed by cocaine  (49.4%)and then benzodiazepines (23.9%). 16.7% sought help for dependency on Pregabalin which is a very serious problem in N.Ireland. 

Around 10% of drug users, seeking help, reported that they were injecting drugs with 24% revealing that they had, at some point, shared injecting equipment.

For those seeking private treatment in the North of Ireland, while referral agents and clinic chains will tell you to the contrary, there are no private centers.  Companies will advertise that there are simply to get you to pick up the phone and call in. While it is a massive inconvenience, it is a reality that simply is not going to change anytime soon.  Accessing private treatment from the north is actually very simple. There are plenty of centers, on the mainland, that are very easy to get to and some are very cost-competitive. Clients will often not accept the fact that centers in the north do not exist and will call around, for days, before reality sets in. The problem then is that they have put themselves on the radar of numerous companies (most of which are owned by a small number of people) who will hound them into the ground: relentlessly. 

Call Paul to discuss your needs, options, and costings. He has many years of experience, including referring clients to private centers. There is no charge for this service and it is completely confidential and impartial. Lines are open 7 days a week.
