Event description

Description

Drug Education & Prevention in Ireland has lacked a consistent and coordinated approach. Best practice in the area has often been ignored in favour of populist approaches.

The purpose of the forum is to bring professionals working or interested in the area together to hear about best practice and look at ways to advance the drug education & prevention sector in Ireland.

We are inviting reps from all regional and local DATFs to attend, along with others relevant to the sector. Booking is essential.
