Alcohol, drug use, homelessness and other related problems have been present in Ballymun for the last two decades. This is recognised in the Ballymun Regeneration Masterplan which acknowledges the inter-dependence of social, economic, and environmental well-being as integral to the local quality of life.

In 2003 the Ballymun Homeless Action Plan showed that people in Ballymun with addiction issues were at particular risk of losing their tenancies due to a lack of appropriate support facilities in the area. In 2006, Ballymun Homeless Forum, a body that brings together local and citywide stakeholders to address strategically the issues of homelessness in Ballymun, commissioned TSA Consulting to quantify the extent of homelessness in Ballymun. TSA Consulting concluded that there were between 70 and 100 homeless households (90 – 130 adults) in Ballymun.
