    Drug & Alcohol Services

    in the Clondalkin Area

Welcome to Clondalkin DATF

The Clondalkin Drug and Alcohol Task Force (CDATF) works to reduce drug-related harms to individuals, families and communities by working in partnership with key stakeholders in the community, voluntary and statutory sectors on the coordination and delivery of services.

CDATF is one of 14 task forces established by the Government in 1997 as an area-based policy response to the concentration of problem drug use, poverty and social exclusion in specific areas in Ireland. Currently, eight organisations are funded through the CDATF to deliver ongoing activities and interventions along the continuum of care of targeted prevention, family support, treatment, rehabilitation, supply reduction and coordination.

In 2021 CDATF established a group of local community representatives to re-establish the voice of the community at the heart of the work of CDATF.  Over the past three years the group have met regularly to discuss the issues local people face related to substance use.  In 2022 the group produced a handbook to improve the sustainability of the group and form a basis for the group’s future development.  The handbook is linked for anyone interested in getting involved in the group.
