Thank you for visiting our website. We do hope you find the site very informative and interesting. As you will see we have combined information on substance misuse, drug support services and a sample of various activities of the Athlone Drug Awareness Group for your attention. We welcome any feedback that you may have. This site is kindly funded by the MRDATF under the action of the Local Drug Network.
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.
