Work will get underway shortly on building a dedicated centre to help children in Cork city and county who are battling drug and alcohol addiction.
News of the project was given to members of the Cork City and County Joint Policing Committee (JPC) by David Lane, coordinator of the Southern Regional Drug and Alcohol Taskforce.
Currently, adults and children battling addiction are treated together at the HSE’s services at Arbour House, in the St Finbarr’s Hospital campus.
