This report was commissioned by the Bray Partnership, one of 38 local development companies established under the Operational Programme for Local, Urban and Rural Development in areas experiencing extreme disadvantage. The purpose of the partnership was to deal with issues of unemployment and social exclusion, concentrating in particular on marginalised groups such as travellers, people with disabilities, disadvantaged women and the long-term unemployed. The Bray Partnership took part in the Bray Drugs Working Group, and commissioned this report in response to concerns about increasing drug use in the area. The aims of the research were to quantify as far as possible the extent of drug misuse in Bray, to determine if there was a need for more drug services in the area, to document existing drug services in Bray and to document any specific qualitative service issues found in the course of the research. Figures compiled in the research mainly related to opiate use. The researchers stated that, of the 23 treated drug misusers found by the Health Research Board in the Bray area, 20 were treated for heroin use.
