National Advisory Committee on Drugs and Alcohol

The NACDA was established in response to the drug problem to assist in our continued need to improve our knowledge and understanding of problem drug use.

The goal of the NACDA is to advise the Government on problem drug use in Ireland in relation to prevalence, prevention consequences and treatment based on our analysis and interpretation of research findings.



The aim of the consequences sub-committee is to examine the impact of drug problems on society in terms of:

  • drug related deaths
  • the effect of drugs on the family and communities
  • the relationship between drugs and crime
  • the methods for tackling social nuisance related to drug misuse

The Consequences sub-committee is made up of the following members. The work programme is currently involved in the following research activities.
