Educational Opportunities

What we do

The Task Force provides financial support for people working or living in the Dublin North East Drugs Task Force geographical area who are participating in training courses relevant to supporting community based drug and alcohol targeted services. Applications are welcome from people in recovery from substance misuse. The Task Force also supports participation in the ‘Certificate in Addiction Studies’. This course is run by Maynooth University and lectures take place in The Morington Centre, Artane. In 2019 we are also running a Level 5 Addiction Studies course (10 weeks).


Entry Requirements

The Task Force will accept applications for financial support from those interested in participating in training. Please see our 'Latest News' for more information.
