Independent Councillor Paddy Mc Quillan is to call on Louth County Council to work with all Drug Service Providers in the north east to explore the possibility setting up a residential detox centre for the area.

Cllr. McQuallian told: “I first proposed this back in 2012 but I was informed by the HSE at the time that there was not a need for one in our area as the existing centres around the country were more than able to cope with the demand. I think that it is fair to say that given the amount of people availing of the service of The Red Door, over 200 weekly presentations, there is a need for this service in the area. In the first six months of this year, The Red Door has referred over thirty individuals to residential detox centres around the country from this Drogheda service alone”.
