The data for these tables are provided by the Health Research Board's National Drug Treatment Reporting System (NDTRS).
The NDTRS is a health information system that collects anonymous data about people in drug and alcohol treatment from general practitioners, low threshold services (that provide low-dose methadone or drop-in facilities only), outpatient and inpatient centres.
Through these interactive tables you can search for treatment data on eight different types of drug, including alcohol. The results of your analysis can be organised by year, age group, treatment status, gender and geographical area of residence (county, HSE Community Health Organisation, Local Health Office, Regional or Local Drug and Alcohol Task Force Area), and groups of variables.
The NDTRS interactive tables have been updated to include 2016 data. Please note that the dataset includes cases treated in all types of services: outpatient, inpatient, GPs, low threshold and those treated in prison. In addition, the statistics include cases with no fixed abode, no known address or an address outside Ireland, in all tables.
The data are valid as of 1st September 2018.
Any of the data published here may be freely used, but remains the property of the NDTRS. To safeguard the integrity and confidentiality of the data, all users must agree to the following conditions:
