Background

Our group was formed in 1996 as a concern of the rising drug problem in the wider Athlone area. It is representative of the Statutory, Voluntary & Community Sectors.
Our two main objectives are to develop strategies in partnership with the statutory bodies to reduce the demand for drugs and to create awareness of the dangers of substance misuse with the general public.
