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 treatment/rehabilitation sub-committee is:

  • To examine the effectiveness in terms of impact and outcomes of existing treatment and rehabilitation models and programmes
  • To examine the impact of the treatment setting
  • To examine the context in which relapse occurs
  • To undertake longitudinal studies of the effectiveness of existing treatment and rehabilitation models
