Tiglin first opened its doors in 2008, operating as a men-only centre. A large proportion of Tiglin’s residents have been homeless due to addiction problems (mainly alcohol and drugs). Tiglin is based near Ashford, Co. Wicklow. The programme at Tiglin accommodates those who have drug or alcohol problems. Tiglin currently have 24 males in their men’s centre and 12 females in the new women’s centre. There is a waiting list of 28 for Tiglin Rehab Centre and it is a 12-16 month programme. Tiglin’s residents complete practical modules in horticulture, cookery, crafts and money management skills. They also take turns managing different parts of the house.
