Ballygar GP warns 200 percent increase in cocaine addiction “only tip of the iceberg”

Ballygar’s Dr. Martin Daly says cocaine isn’t a new problem and its increasing prevelance has been flagged for over a decade.

He says it’s become acceptable in every city, town, village and sports club, across all age groups and socio-economic barriers.

But he’s warning our health services are just not equipped to deal with the deluge of people seeking help.

Speaking to Galway Talks, Dr. Daly said it has a devastating effect on the whole community – and many young people are destroying their opportunities.
