In this section we include information about the Extent of the Drugs Problem in Ireland. You can download reports that estimate opiate and cocaine use, the National Report on Drug Issues for Ireland, Treatment figures and information on Drug Related Deaths.

We outline how drugs have become a Problem for whole Communities, how the very fabric of communities is being impacted by problematic drug use.

And we put forward the Community Development Response to tackling the drugs crisis.
