Community Based Drugs Initiative – Cityside

Community Based Drugs Initiative – Cityside provides a local accessible community drugs service to the areas of Ferrybank, inner-city and the North West suburbs Waterford. We support adults and young people, family or community members affected by substance misuse to work though and overcome the issues most concerning them. The project is supported by a team of local community volunteers. We are managed by the Waterford and South Tipperary Community Youth services which supports a community development approach and funded by the South East regional Drug and Alcohol Task Force.

• One to one support • Various group supports including SMART Recovery and a Family Support Group • Information and helpful advice on substance misuse • Education and awareness programmes and workshops • Auricular Acupuncture/complimentary therapies • Referral to other agencies where needed
