Opioid misuse tests the extent to which we can adhere to a multisectoral approach to public health. It reflects the intersection between healthcare, criminal justice and cultural issues in a phenomenon that is harmful to the health of individuals and communities. A review of how opioid misuse has been tackled in Dublin over the past two decades can operate as a case history of how a public health issue was dealt with by a particular society and political system.
