The Alcohol and Drug Research Unit (ADRU) of the Health Research Board is a multi-disciplinary team of researchers and information specialists who provide objective, reliable and comparable information on the drug and alcohol situation, its consequences and responses in Ireland.

The ADRU maintains two national drug-related surveillance systems and is the national focal point for the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction. The unit also manages the National Documentation Centre on Drug Use.

The ADRU disseminates research findings, information and news through its quarterly newsletter, Drugnet Ireland, and other publications. Through its activities, the ADRU aims to inform policy and practice in relation to drug and alcohol use.
