This report deals with the issue of service provision in response to illegal drug use in Bray. The report identifies deficiencies in rehabilitation programmes, suitable premises for youth counselling etc., needle exchanges, information services, counselling services, youth workers and sport and leisure activities. The profile of the young people using drugs in Bray is mixed in terms of class, gender, educational attainment and family background. The long-term challenges that were identified in the report can only be met within a well-resourced set of structures that knit together the expertise and knowledge of the community as well as the statutory agencies. These should come into play as the primary source for understanding local needs and the impact, successful or otherwise of programmes which are put in place. The researchers recommend that a process involving all of the above be started which would lead to the development of a coherent, integrated and holistic drugs service plan for Bray.
