Currently Ireland has a Drugs & H.I.V. Helpline which provides a great service however it is limited and only runs primarily between the hours of 10am to 4 or 5pm Monday to Friday. The issue for many people is not a 9 to 5 issue and the idea of this poll is to see if there is a general concensus that families and those affected by substance misuse need and have the right to access information and support at anytime.

John O'Brien, Ireland8 years ago Comments: Really need a 24/7 service
Maria O'Mahony, Ireland8 years ago Comments: I fully agree that there should be a 24/7 helpline and more action taken by the Government to assist families caught in the net of drug misuse. It should be made a priority on the Ministerial listings for Cabinet. So much money is currently being wasted on drug rehab programs where there isn't a direct link between the centre and the abuser's guardian through 'confidentiality' issues .. it just isn't good enough. Drug abuse is rampant in the country at this stage and there just isn't enough resources to protect our families or to offer support to those that need it.
