Ana Liffey Drug Project. (1998) Ana Liffey Drug Project annual report 1997. Dublin: Ana Liffey Drug Project.

The Ana Liffey Drug Project (ALDP) is a Northside community-based Inner City project providing a range of services and supports to drug users, their partners, children and families from many different parts of Dublin, largely those which have endured unemployment, deprivation, poverty and social and educational disadvantage. The services include a drop-in centre, counselling, family support and community outreach. This report outlines the activities of the Ana Liffey Drug Project in 1997. During the year approximately 1350 clients (not including children) attended the project with 14,760 counselling contacts/ interventions made, showing an increase for the project over the preceding year.

The ALDP continued to work with the detoxification programme in Mountjoy Prison, offering two groups per week in each of the six weeks of this programme. The Peer Support Training Programme was initiated in 1997, and the ALDP continued to support the training of those working in the drugs field, with nurses, community workers, social workers, addictions studies students and student Garda all spending time on placement with the project. The ALDP also continued its work with the North Inner City Drugs Task Force to formulate plans for the future.
