Selected examples:
P.27 The new Action Plan for Housing will contain a specific section on ‘preventing homelessness’ that will consult on and target new measures such as:
• Step down services and facilities after drug rehabilitation

P.56. We will also focus on a number of key programmes and strategies including:
• Completing work and commencing implementation of a new National Drugs Strategy within 12 months
• We will support a health-led rather than criminal justice approach to drugs use including legislating for injection rooms

P.57. We will make a number of key public health interventions including:
• Enacting the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill
• Making Ireland Tobacco free by 2025 (less than 5% of the population smoking)

P.79. Excessive alcohol and drug consumption can do lasting damage to the lives of our young people. We will enact the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill. We will also strengthen regulation of alcohol advertising to children.

P.80. We support the expansion of Local Drug Taskforce projects, and extend Garda Youth Diversion Programmes for young people promoting restorative justice, and other voluntary organisations that contribute to our young people’s future direction.

P.132. Tackling the problem of anti-social behaviour and drug and alcohol related crime in our communities requires a comprehensive approach, incorporating policing, treatment and demand reduction. It is only through a combination of these measures that we can address the underlying causes of this behaviour and better safeguard our communities. The new Government will, amongst other measures seek to:
• Safeguard urban centres and the night-time economy by properly resourcing An Garda Síochána in targeting the sale and supply of illicit drugs on our streets
• Support the expansion of Local Drug Taskforce projects, and extend Garda Youth Diversion Programmes for young people, and other voluntary organisations that contribute to our young people’s future direction
