Drugs and alcohol counselling
If you’re having a problem with drugs or alcohol and need some help, there are centres and services around the country there to support you.
Getting help is really a brave and positive thing to do.
Where to go for drugs and alcohol counselling
Addiction counsellors are generally accessible within community mental health teams, but you will usually need to be referred by a GP or another member of the mental health team.
Contact the Health Service Executive to locate the service in your area, or go to drugs.ie for information, counselling and live support through an online chat and information service. You can also freephone their helpline on 1800 459 459.
