This research is the first empirical piece of research concerning the prevalence of drug use in the Greater Blanchardstown area. The research commenced in August 1998 with a consultative process involving agencies involved with the drug issue. It was quickly found that although there was a great concern in estimating the numbers involved in problematic drug misuse in the area, there was also a concern in investigating the nature of that drug misuse in order to enhance service delivery. The research investigates the prevalence and profiles of drug misusers in the six designated Task Force areas of Corduff, Mulhuddart, Blakestown, Mountview, Huntstown and Hartstown. There is often a fear in opening up debates concerning the level of drug use in any particular area. This following report is one of several projects undertaken by the GBRD to engage communities in the realisation of a drug problem in their area.
