Mental Health disorders are almost three times as common among those with alcohol dependence, compared to the general population. The Health Research Board in its fourth quarterly report (2006) of the Performance Indicators had indicated that Clare Mental Health Services stood second highest (19.1%) in the admission of patients with Primary Alcohol Disorder in the HSE West Area. Also, it was the highest among the Mid-Western Health Board Areas. This is the context within which this audit was done.
