Heroin No Longer Main Drug People Are Seeing Treatment For

This is according to figures from the Health Research Board.

Cocaine has for the first time overtaken heroin as the main drug for which people are seeking treatment.

Figures from the Health Research Board show the numbers seeking help for cocaine addiction tripled between 2015 and last year.

It follows a report last week that found the number of young people presenting with problem cocaine use had increased by 171% between 2011 and 2019.
