Detoxification Programme:

Aiséirí provides evidence-based detoxification, treatment and rehabilitation programmes for adults and adolescents suffering from addiction.
Our detox facilities are in Aiséirí Aislinn located in Ballyragget in Kilkenny. This is the adolescent treatment centre. We also provide detox to adults in our Cahir centre, this centre is located in Co. Tipperary.

Services Provided:

Aiséirí provides detox from alcohol and drugs depending on the needs presented at the initial assessment. Aiséirí is a medically monitored facility and provides 24/7 nursing cover to manage detox needs. There is medical personnel on-call to manage withdrawal needs as well as consultation from Consultant Psychiatrist’s, where necessary.

The main substances treated within the detox facility are alcohol, benzodiazepines and opioids. This is not an exhaustive list, which is why we urge you to contact the nursing team in Aiséirí for more information.


Aiséirí is recognised by the HSE, The Probation Service, Tusla and Health Insurance Companies. It is recommended that you check with your Health Insurance Company if they will cover detox treatment as well as therapeutic treatment. If paying privately, the cost of detox is €243 per night in Aiseiri Cahir and €390 per night in Aiséirí Aislinn.

Length of stay:

The detox programme and the length of stay associated, is added to the overall treatment programme.

For example, in Aiséirí Cahir, the average alcohol detox is 5-7days in duration. This is added to the therapeutic 28 day programme.

Aiséirí Aislinn and Aiséirí Cahir do not provide standalone detox. Aiséirí ’s ethos firmly believes that addiction requires treatment as well as detox where necessary. Please refer to the ‘treatment’ section on the website for more information.
