As of January 10, there were 150 people on the waiting list for a place at National Center of Addiction Medicine’s (SÁA) treatment clinic, according to Þórarinn Tyrfingsson, chief physician at Vogur clinic.

Þórarinn told Morgunblaðið that the waiting list is expected to get longer, with up to 300 at the end of the month.

At the beginning of the year, many people often seek help for the first time, he said. Priority is given to those with more serious cases and to those who are seeking assistance for the first time.
