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 2017 we launched our strategic plan 2017-2020: Delivering our ambition: Recovery for a better life which focuses on three strategic priorities, sustainability innovation and growth & collaboration and communication.
Leading an innovation centre of excellence where people can recover and have fulfilled lives in their community.
To provide accessible quality services for those affected by drug and alcohol use and mental health issues.
