Executive Summary

2015 saw CARP continuing to strive for and reach the continuum of care goals and national drug strategy targets, meaning the programme meets national rehab framework standards and has formally implemented a clear continuum of care.


The staff team in particular gain great credit for their dedication and commitment to becoming Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) Practitioners, thus allowing the project to become one of few teams in Dublin 24 to have a full staff team trained and accredited in evidence based practice.


CARP has seen a significant increase in inter agency working with SDCC, TRP, CKU, Yoda, Youth Reach, and Killinarden Community Centre. This has enabled the project to agree service level agreements and ensure consistent service delivery.


CARP was selected to be one of five services selected to pilot a new client management system Ecass and is working hard to integrate this system into its every day practice


CARP staff have worked hard to support and drive the implantation and integration of a new polish addiction support service with the support of the TDATF.


CARP staff have supported the establishment of a new one day low threshold homeless support service with the support of the SDCC.


CARP has continued to identify and address the need to support and respond to emerging drug trends that our clients and community struggle with.


CARP is progressing well to meet all the goals set out in its Three Year Strategic Plan launched late in 2014.
