ABOUT US

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.

In 2022 we launched our strategic plan 2022-2024: Creating Integrated Pathways – Recovery in Action which focuses on four strategic priorities, delivering quality, developing services, organisational sustainability & fostering awareness.

OUR VISION

Every person experiencing drug and alcohol problems, and their families, will be offered the help they need, when they need it.

OUR MISSION

We will provide fair and inclusive access to high quality care delivered in a professional and seamless way to every person experiencing problematic drug and alcohol use.

We will support every family impacted by problematic drug and alcohol use, so that everyone has an equal opportunity for recovery and to lead a fulfilled life. 

OUR VALUES

At FAST we have a set of five core values that shape and inform everything that we do:

Dignity:
We create a respectful, supportive and confidential environment for people who use our services, for our staff and for our volunteers.

Integrity:
We demonstrate integrity, transparency, and accountability in our practices, organisational systems and structures.

Empowerment:
We support individuals to achieve their personal recovery goals and to connect positively with their families and their communities.

Quality:
We are committed to evidence-based practice and continuous improvements in service delivery.

Compassion:
We listen carefully, have empathy and act with positive intent.
