Clarity on addiction recovery support groups welcome – Thomas Gould TD

Sinn Fein spokesperson on Addiction, Recovery and Wellbeing, Thomas Gould TD, has welcomed the announcement that addiction recovery support groups can continue to meet under Level 5 restrictions but has expressed his disappointment that this issue couldn’t have been resolved prior to the commencement of restrictions.

Teachta Gould said:

“It is welcome news that these vital addiction recovery support groups can resume meeting. They shouldn’t have had to stop again in the first place.

“The Minister for Health has recognised the essential healthcare service these groups provide.

“I contacted the Minister of State on Monday and requested clarity for addiction recovery support groups. This should have been issued then before the restrictions commenced.

“This is yet another example of the Minister’s failure to act for people in recovery. I am deeply concerned that he fails to realise the impact his inaction has on people’s wellbeing.”
