Over 70% of people accessing Dublin Simon's detox unit said substance abuse was the main reason they became homeless in the first place. Their annual report revealed that the no. of people accessing detox increased by 23% last year. rte.ie/news/dublin/20…
“We see first hand the toll this is taking in the increased demands for our treatment services, counselling services & increase in crisis counselling interventions. Outcomes for people in emergency accommodation will not improve until they have a secure home of their own."
CEO Sam McGuiness cited the toll on the physical & mental health of people trapped in long-term homelessness. “This population is desperate to exit homelessness and yet they are spending longer than ever before in emergency accommodation."
The number of people in emergency accommodation in Dublin in August shows a drop of 4.7% over the previous year, but an increase of 1% month on month. According to the latest report; 5930 people were in emergency accommodation in August 2021.
Dublin Simon is disappointed by the rise in numbers accessing Dublin emergency accommodation and highlights the fact that more than half of all those using its services have been homeless for more than three years. dubsimon.ie/news/long-term…
