Finglas Addiction Support Team (FAST)

The Finglas Addiction Support Team (FAST) was set up by a group of volunteers from the Finglas community who realised that there were limited services for drug users and family members in the area. Since 2004, the service has grown and developed rapidly. In 2011 we moved to a purpose built building on Wellmount Road, Finglas.

Through fostering belief in the person’s potential for change and focusing on the value they have as people, we have witnessed individuals emerging from isolation and despair into able, confident people realising their ability to participate in their families and their communities.

Brian Mitchell, Amy Roche, and others in FAST talk about the work they do in the community and the types of services they offer. One of the participants in the programmes also speaks about his experiences.
