This is the Spiritan Asylum Initiative situated in the heart of Dublin is a service which unfortunately has grown more and more over the years and is probably at its busiest time ever.   I say unfortunately not because of the wonderful work being carried out but because the need for this service has grown as a result of war and torture inflicted on so many human beings today.   This service was started by the Spiritan’s and is the only specialist centre in Ireland for the care and rehabilitation of survivors of torture and severe trauma.  Here we see Religious and lay professionals working together to provide holistic care.
