The staff and management of Saoirse Treatment Centre are pleased to formally announce the opening of a new day treatment addiction center, which will offer a range of supports and treatment options for people and families with drug and alcohol problems. The centre is located at 18B Davis Street Limerick in a 2,200 sq ft premises with full facilities to operate such a center. The center will be operated on an interim basis subject to evaluation and established need. The centre is to be managed by Alan Galvin and Liam Ryan, who both have extensive experience in this area and whose most recent positions were in Aljeff Treatment Center. After Aljeff closed down, it left a huge void in terms of treatments available in the city. Initial funding for the centre is coming from the HSE Mid-West Regional Drug Co-ordination Unit. Saoirse will offer a range of interventions including a Pre-Treatment Programme based on the principles of Harm Reduction; a non residential Day Programme based on the principles of abstinence and a clinically based family programme for family members and concerned persons in addition to 1:1 counselling.
