The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Andrew Montague, launched the Ana Liffey Drug Project’s Strategic Plan 2012 – 2014 earlier today in the Mansion House, Dublin.
The Strategic Plan will shape the work and aims of the organisation through the next three years. Significant goals to be achieved include the development of a Crisis Residential Detox Unit for people experiencing problems with poly-drug use; the development of a Medically Supervised Injecting Centre for injecting drug users in Dublin; and the development of a Naloxone Pilot Programme for drug users, peers and families.
Tony Duffin, Director of the Ana Liffey Drug Project said,
“There are ambitious and ground-breaking goals within the plan which we have set for ourselves. These have been informed by feedback from all of our stakeholders and are based on evidence. We will seek to further develop progression pathways for people who use drugs; and from both a strategic and service delivery perspective, we are committed to working in partnership with other agencies to ensure that quality addiction services are available and accessible to people who need them in Ireland. We look forward to the challenges we have set ourselves for the period 2012 – 2014.”
