We are committed to providing effective, high quality and client focused treatment. This is provided in a caring, professional manner, taking account of the individual needs of our clients within a multidisciplinary setting. We offer guidance and training to other professionals working in the area of substance misuse and contribute to policy development in addiction management.

In partnership with other statutory and voluntary agencies, The Drug Treatment Centre Board provides prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and aftercare programmes on an out-patient and in-patient basis in order to minimise the harmful effects of drug addiction and prevent the spread of HIV and other infectious diseases.

Out-patient treatment facilities are provided on-site. In-patient detoxification facilities are located at St. Michael’s Ward, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin (10-bed unit) and Cuan Dara, Cherry Orchard Hospital, Dublin (17-bed unit).

In addition we provide a National Drug Analysis Laboratory service which supports treatment policy, monitors trends and supports service planning and best practice in the treatment, care and management of drug misuse. Our research supports evidence based practice in drug treatment policy and clinical developments.
