History of FAST:
The need for support services for drug users and their families was identified by a small number of local residents who witnessed first hand the impact of drug misuse in their community. They sought the support of the wider community, statutory and voluntary organisations to develop a community-based response to this problem. Towards this end they consulted with a wide range of stakeholders including local community and residents groups, service providers and politicians. A drop-in service for drug users and their families was established in Janelle Shopping Centre. The uptake by service users of this drop-in highlighted the need for a more developed service.

Finglas Addiction Support Team(FAST) was established and became a legal entity in 2004. The Finglas Cabra Local Drug Task Force (LDTF) agreed to fund FAST on an interimbasis, working froma temporary premises in a portacabin adjacent to St. Helena’s Resource Centre in Finglas South. The service remained and developed within this portacabin till November 2008 when the service relocated to larger premises at 2a Wellmount Road.
