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 prevention sub-committee is:

  • To examine the effectiveness in terms of impact and outcomes of existing prevention models and programmes, with particular regard to evaluation instruments developed at European level
  • To undertake comparative studies of different models with particular reference to those in operation in Local Drug Task Force (LDTF) areas2
  • To determine transferability of models among different target groups
