On Friday September 7th, Minister Jan O’Sullivan, Minister of State at the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government presented the component Certificates to the participants who completed the Community Addiction Studies Course in 2012.

Now in its 11th year, the course has been completed by over 130 people participants from local communities as well as voluntary, community and Statutory organisations.

Guided by an adult education philosophy and using the principles of Community Development, the focus is on the entire group working and learning together.  The main aims of the course are:
• To enable people to learn about drugs and their effects.
• To develop an understanding of addiction.
• To examine their own attitudes.
• To become more effective in their personal response.
• To develop the skills and knowledge to become more effective in responding to problem drug use in their own communities.

We would like to commend the participants for their dedication and commitment through the 21 weeks of the course and also thank our note taker, tutor and two facilitators.

Congratulations and well done to everyone.
