Treatment for cocaine use among young people increased by 171 percent between 2011 and 2019.
New data from the Health Research Board found ecstasy and cocaine use among young people in Ireland was the second highest in Europe while cannabis remains the most common drug in the country.
Although drug-related problems are on the rise, it seems people are starting to drink alcohol at an older age.
In 2002 the average age people had their first drink was 15.6 years.
That has increased to 16.6 years in 2019.
Meanwhile one-in-three drinkers aged 15-24 years has an alcohol use disorder, with Ireland ranking 7th in Europe for reports of being drunk.
