The Ana Liffey Drug Project aims to respond to the needs of drug users, their families, their children and their communities in a flexible, person-centred way. The project endeavours to create a welcoming and open environment where service users are respected, accepted and encouraged to manage the issues impacting on their lives.
The project works with service users to reduce the risks associated with drug use, advocate for the rights and needs of drug users, and improve overall quality of life.
- To provide a safe environment in which drug users and their families can look at issues affecting their lives
- To promote a better understanding of and awareness of the issues of drug use, HIV, AIDS and Hepatitis
- To take account of and initiate responses to the ever changing needs and developments in drug use.
Since being established in 1982 in North Inner City Dublin, the Ana Liffey Drug Project has provided a 'Low Threshold - Harm Reduction' service to people affected by problem substance use.
