The HSE National Alcohol and Addiction Governance (NAAG) group has been charged with overseeing the implementation of the recommendations made in the Opioid Treatment Protocol Review, Joe Doyle, National Rehabilitation Co-ordinator, Integrated Service Directorate (ISD), HSE, has told Irish Medical Times.

There are four governance groups within social inclusion, he explained — travellers, the homeless, addicts and new communities — with each of the governance groups reporting back to the social inclusion team.

“We set up a group to scope out the recommendations in the [Opioid Treatment Protocol Review] report and that group met a couple of weeks ago, so there is a series of actions now going back to the NAAG, in relation to how best to implement the individual recommendations,” Joe Doyle explained.
