Pavee Point’s Drug and Alcohol Programme hosted its second online National Traveller Drug Network meeting last week.

The meeting covered a range of topics which included an input from Ms. Nicki Killeen- HSE Social Inclusion who presented on the emerging trend of use of Nitrous Oxide.

There was also a presentation of an overview of the National Drug Treatment Reporting System figures which highlights Travellers’ access to, and engagement with, drug services and associated drug use trends between 2018-2019. 

The use of online platform for the Network meeting is a new way of working for everyone. Hosting the Network in this way continues to allow us to provide relevant, ongoing information and have open discussions on emerging trends/issues while providing a space to continue to learning and share experiences with each other.
