Drug-related intimidation – such as attempts to recover drug debts or otherwise enforce discipline in drug markets through actual or threatened violence – is a complex issue that requires cooperation across the community to address effectively, according to a report today published by the Ana Liffey Drug Project. ‘Debts, Threats, Distress and Hope – Towards Understanding Drug-Related Intimidation in Dublin’s North East Inner City’ is the final report of the drug-related intimidation initiative, a project set up in September 2019 to look at the issue in the local area. The report reveals that over 4 in 5 respondents to an online survey aimed at those living and/or working in the NEIC area were aware of drug-related intimidation as an issue in the area, with over 1 in 5 reporting that they had experienced it themselves.

Minister Feighan stated: “‘I acknowledge the key role played by the national voluntary drug and alcohol sector in the implementation of the national drug strategy. It is a main provider of drug and alcohol services, in partnership with the HSE and the drug and alcohol task forces. I am working with the sector to restore drug and alcohol services as part of the national framework for living with Covid-19. I welcome the launch of their new website which will be an essential resource for its member organisations and its service users.”
