    Posted on August 8th, 2012 TimB No comments

    The number of people waiting for opioid substitution treatment in the 13-month period from the end of March 2011 to the end of April 2012 has fallen by 19 per cent, new figures reveal.

    The HSE has seen a reduction from 230 to 187 in the number of people on drug treatment waiting lists. Some 22 of its 48 clinics have no waiting times, and 33 of the 48 have waiting times of less than a month.

    The longest waiting times were in the Midlands (Portlaoise Clinic had an average waiting time (AWT) of 5.7 months), the North-East (Louth Drug Service had an AWT of 4.4 months), and in pockets of Dublin (Castle St Clinic had an AWT of 2.9 months).
