The location of the new facility will be revealed by 1 November, when a decision will be made on which organisation will run it.

Ana Liffey, which runs a needle exchange facility on Middle Abbey Street, and MQI Ireland, which runs a similar service on Merchants Quay, are understood to have tendered, while the HSE has its own drug treatment centre in Trinity Court off Pearse Street.
