The Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Community Addiction Team (DLR-CAT), which has been operating since 2004, provides an addiction service that assists adult persons to address their substance misuse within a community context and supports their integration into mainstream services and into the community and society more broadly. The Project is fully funded through the Task Force process. Its structure includes an independent Board, consisting community and statutory personnel, and the team consists of a manager, an administrator and five project workers. It is based in rooms in the Sandyford Industrial Estate, served by both LUAS and bus routes. The following services are provided

  • Drop-in, harm-reduction advice and information, and pre-assessment contact
  • Initial and comprehensive assessments
  • After-care support
