This includes 22 who were admitted either with their children or while pregnant.

In new statistics for the facility an increase in heroin addiction was also noted, with seven out of 10 women and half of all men citing addiction to the drug as a problem.

In 2014 the facility supported 1,250 individuals over the course of the year.
