Description:
The NACD is tasked, as part of its terms of reference, with advising the Government about the prevention of problem drug taking in Ireland. In December 2001, the NACD published its first report -Drug Use Prevention, Overview of Research by Dr Mark Morgan, which examined prevention programmes and methods in considerable depth. It is d ear that prevention efforts both formal and informal take place in many different settings within the broader community. within schools and primarily within the home. Arising from the recommendations in the above report, the NACD through its Prevention Sub Committee commissioned further research. This Report is the result of a study of Family Support Services and their potential to contribute to drug prevention. The Report emphasises the preventive role of the family and as a result the key plan that Family Support Services can, often without realising it, play in strengthening families and their individual members in their responses to the drugs phenomenon. As is evidenced by other research the majority of those who seek treatment for heroin addiction are single and living with their families. The role of the family is, therefore, particularly significant. As the report makes clear, this can often result in further harm to the family
