Alcohol Action Ireland Webinar - Access to alcohol treatment: Removing barriers to healthcare
June 8th, 2022. 11.00am -12.30pm
Almost 15% of the population in Ireland (578,000 people) have an alcohol use disorder. However, according to the Health Research Board's data on alcohol treatment in 2020, there were only 3319 new presentations gaining access to alcohol treatment services.
This webinar explores aspects of accessing alcohol treatment with contributions from those with lived experience and from service providers.
