About us

History Background

The Finglas Addiction Support Team (FAST) was originally 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 continues to develop into a diverse service widely used by people within the Finglas community.


Our mission is to continue to provide the highest standard of Addiction Support to the people of Finglas


Our vision is to work in partnership with participants; their families and their communities to create a more inclusive community in Finglas where our participants are treated as emerging active citizens, with strengths and contributions to make, to their own, and their community’s wellbeing.


Incorporating values of caring, fairness, respect and understanding into our interactions at all levels with participants, we desire to see confident, well connected people, with a strong sense of belonging and awareness of their own strengths; who in turn take their rightful place as productive members of their community.


The team at FAST pride themselves in making every effort to provide a dignified, quality, professional service to all who participate in the service.
