Under its Strategy, 2016-18, The DLR-DATF has re-structured its activities under four  programmes  as outlined below. Funding for these programmes is provided directly by way of Task Force recommendation to the relevant statutory authorities, i.e. the Health Services Executive (HSE), the Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Local Education and Training Board, under the overall policy direction of the Drugs Policy Unit (DPU) at the Department of Health.

  1. Treatment and Rehabilitation (T&R) programme for adults as provided through Community Addiction Team (CAT)
  2. Family Intervention and Support (FI&S) programme as provided through Barnardo’s (lead) and Mounttown Neighbourhood Youth and Family Project
  3. Youth Prevention Programme (YPP) as provided through Mounttown Neighbourhood Youth and Family Project (lead),Ballyogan Family Resource Centre  and Community Addiction Team (CAT)
  4. Coordination and Training Programme (CTP) is a second-tier support to the above three programmes and provided through the Task Force and Southside Training.

The first three of these programmes are structued to provide outreach and a keyworking/case management service on an individual basis, with occasional group supports, as required. The programmes value the importance of data collection and monitoring, and, where appropriate, they provide information for HRB-NDTRS data returns; they also participate in the development and implementation of outcome measures and schedules.
