Treated problem alcohol use in Ireland: 2008 figures from the National Drug Treatment Reporting System

Significant improvements in the NDTRS data-collection processes and procedures mean that the HRB is now able to report on the information collected from treatment centres on an a more regular basis. From 2009, the figures on the extent of treated drug and alcohol use will be published within a year of collection. Trends papers will also be published regularly to examine changes over time. The data presented in this paper provide a description of problem alcohol use in Ireland by HSE area of residence.
