On 12 November 2018, the Department of Health’s Drugs Policy Unit and the Health Research Board (HRB) hosted the first annual National Drugs Forum in the Aviva Stadium. The theme for the forum was Working better together by developing communities of practice. This event aimed to strengthen the capacity of existing communities of practice and to provide examples for collaborative working across the statutory, community, and voluntary sectors.

 

There were four workshops:

    • Supporting prevention work in the community.
    • Dual diagnosis: using partnership and peer support as resources in treatment.
    • The role of social reintegration in recovery.
    • Harm reduction services: engaging with people who use drugs
