Dr. Michael Kinsella is a doctor in corporate and legal ethics, currently working with Cuan Mhuire. Cuan Mhuire is Ireland’s largest voluntary provider of Rehabilitation Treatment for individuals suffering from addiction and other related issues.  Since its formation in 1966 by Sr. Consilio, Cuan Mhuire has treated over 75,000 people and it’s success rate of 80% is one of the highest for any addiction centre. At any one time Cuan Mhuire has 600 people in treatment through their nationwide centres in Bruree, Co. Limerick; Farnanes, Co. Cork; Athy, Co. Kildare; Coolarne, Co. Galway and Newry, Co. Down. Dr. Michael Kinsella explained to Conor Deane why rehabilitation is much better than maintaining people on substitutes like Methadone, which he sees as being just as problematic.
