PDF (An interim evaluation of the SAOL project)

The SAOL project is an innovative training, education and development initiative for women drug users who have been participants in methadone maintenance programmes. The project incorporates community development and adult education methods as its main mode of intervention. It is also based in the local community where the programme participants live. Participants were recruited from the local Eastern Health Board drug treatment clinic. A management committee was drawn together in the early months of 1995. It comprised representatives of the Eastern Health Board, FAS and the Inner City Renewal Group. A representative of the Ana Liffey Drug Project subsequently joined the committee. This evaluation is based upon data from qualitative interviews with project management, staff and participants. In addition, the report draws upon relevant projects, documents and records. The evaluation recommends further provision of crèche services, ongoing external evaluation, and further debate on the goals of interventions with drug users.
