The internet offers huge potential for Ana Liffey to reach out to people affected by drug use. For many people the internet is their first point of information when seeking support related to drugs and alcohol. In January 2007, when aldp.ie was launched, its purpose was to inform people who may need our support about the services we offer and how to contact us. This remains a central purpose.
However, in the intervening years, online activity has become no longer just about information provision – it’s as much about communication and engagement as a face to face meeting. If you want to know what we’re working on at the moment, visit our twitter and facebook. And be sure to sign up to our mailing list on our #saferfromharm campaign on a harm reducing and rehabilitative approach to possession of drugs for personal use.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks of the year people all over Ireland are able to find information and pathways to advice & support through our website.
I hope you all find the information on aldp.ie easily accessible. Please click here if you have any feedback regarding our website.
If you, or someone close to you, are experiencing difficulties related to drugs and/or alcohol click here now for a convenient link to find an addiction service in your area.
