DATE FOR YOUR DIARY: Monday, 24th February 2010

The stigma of addiction affects many individuals and families but it doesn’t have to be this way. Drugs are a cancer and nobody needs to hold their head in shame when asking for help. It begins with sharing our stories, better public education and a broader sense of acceptance of addiction as a treatable disease similar to diabetes, heart disease, etc.

On the back of the National Drugs’ Strategy

‘Reducing Harm, Supporting Recovery; a health led response to drug and alcohol use in Ireland 2017-2025’
