Dublin 15 Community Addiction Team (CAT)
D15 CAT provides support to anyone in the wider Blanchardstown area that is impacted by addiction.
The main goal is to achieve abstinence by eliminating positive reinforcements for using alcohol and drugs and enhance positive reinforcements for becoming/remaining drug-free. The belief that the individual’s environment plays a powerful role in encouraging or discouraging alcohol and drug use.
