Drug and Alcohol Task Force areas - A short overview of drug and alcohol task force areas by the Department of Health
Ballymun Local Drugs Task Force was set up in 1997 to respond to drugs issues in the Ballymun community.
BLDATF is one of 12 LDATF around Dublin, which were set up in the late 1990s to address the drug crisis of the time. As a locally based multi-agency/multi-disciplinary board we support a number of organisations within the community to provide a range of services and activities across the region.
The BLDATF was originally established to serve the areas of Mulhuddart/Corduff, Mountview/Blakestown and Hartstown/Huntstown. However we will endeavour to help anyone who presents to them from the Dublin 15 area.
The Task Force has in place prevention and education programmes, treatment services for active users and rehabilitation service.
The overall aim of the Clondalkin DATF is to significantly reduce the harm caused to individuals and society by the misuse of drugs. This web-site will give you a variety of information on drugs, local drug services, funding opportunities and up and coming events.
In May 1996, the Cork LDATF was formed and its brief was to develop a strategic, locally based response to the drug problem in Cork.
Dublin 12 LDATF website provides an information resource for the local area around drug awareness, drug education, drug prevention, family support, local drugs research, family & community support.
Statutory, voluntary, community and public representatives work in partnership to provide and maintain a system of supports and services for individuals, families and communities through which existing and future problem drug use is prevented, reduced and managed.
DLR LDATF works to ensure that the National Drugs Strategy becomes reality in Dún Laoghaire Rathdown. We advocate for communities and for service users on important issues pertaining to drug misuse.
The ECRADATF is based in Bray, and works with communities in County Wicklow and South Dublin
The primary strategic aim of this task force is to build and maintain a working Task Force structure facilitating all stakeholders to participate in the development of responses to local drug-related issues.
The Task Force is responsible for ensuring the development of a co-ordinated response to tackling drugs problems in counties Clare, Limerick, North Tipperary and Limerick City.
The aim of the MRDATF is to deliver a more co-ordinated response in tackling the problem of drug misuse in Counties Laois, Offaly, Longford and Westmeath.
Drug and alcohol problems affect communities in many ways so the RDATF develops plans to address problematic drug/alcohol use under three key areas: (1) Treatment & Rehabilitation, (2) Education & Prevention & (3) Supply Reduction.
