In 2011, Dublin and the surrounding areas had some of the highest rates of alcohol consumption compared to the rest of Ireland. In 2014, more than half of drinkers aged 18-75 were classified as ‘harmful drinkers’, and Ireland was found to have one of the highest rates of binge drinking in Europe. Among these drinkers, 6.9% were classified as dependent, and therefore in need of addiction treatment.
