615. Deputy Maureen O'Sullivan asked the Minister for Health the number of beds currently available for persons with addiction issues for both under the age of 18 and over 18 years, in the areas of detox and residential addiction treatment; the locations of such beds available; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [30722/14]

Minister for Health (Deputy Leo Varadkar): In line with the National Drugs Strategy, it is Government policy to expand the availability of, and access to, detoxification facilities and treatment services, in particular for those who are under 18 years of age. As the information requested by the Deputy is not readily available to my Department, I have referred the Deputy's query to the HSE for direct reply.
