Inchicore Bluebell Community Addiction Team

Catalogue: Research and Evaluation
Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland
Northern Ireland

The Inchicore Community Drug Team was established in 1999 and the Bluebell Addiction Advisory Group in 2004. In 2011 both projects merged to form the Inchicore Bluebell Community Addiction Team. During the intervening years the project has grown, developed and expanded its services. The service is now well established in both communities, providing a key community response to local addiction problems. Our research for this strategic plan involved consultation with all the major stakeholders in the service. Funding cutbacks in recent times, necessitated the use of in-house resources to conduct the consultation. Staff rose to the challenge and gathered very interesting results during the course of their interviews. Polydrug use continues to be a major issue for service users. The growing problems of alcohol and herbal cannabis use, along with an alarming rise in mental health issues are among those issues identified. This plan reflects the needs of service users and identifies our key strategic goals seek to address those needs. We will strive to meet the challenges identified in this report and we will endeavour to stay focused on providing direct service provision, responding to the changing addiction problems in Inchicore and Bluebell.
