COMMUNITY DRUG TEAM

The Community Drug Team was set up to work with drug users in the Ballyfermot Drugs Task Force area. The team work with individuals who tend to be chaotic in their lifestyle and who are finding it difficult to access other services for whatever reason. We believe that recovery is possible and achievable.

Our aim is to create a positive and meaningful change in each individual client’s life through offering a range of services that meet the identified needs of each client.

Being a low threshold service our underlying ethos is to provide support, information and options encompassing a harm reduction model. Our current range of services on offer includes the following:

  • One to One support
  • Breakfast Mornings
  • Key-working
  • Care-planning
  • Group Work
  • Holistic Therapies
  • Counselling
  • Needle Exchange
  • Referrals
  • Drop In
  • Outreach
  • Assessments for treatment

Opening hours
