Welcome to the MRDATF

As Chairperson of the Midland Regional Drug and Alcohol Task Force (MRDATF), I would like to welcome you to the MRDATF Website.  Funded by the Department of Health, the MRDATF covers the catchment area of Longford, Westmeath, Laois and Offaly. The overall objective of the MRDATF is to continue to tackle the harm caused to individuals and society by the misuse of drugs and alcohol through a concerted focus on the five pillars of the National Drugs Strategy 2009 – 2016, Supply Reduction, Prevention, Treatment, Rehabilitation and Research. Membership of the MRDATF reflects a four county interagency collaboration that includes representation from the Community Sector, Voluntary Sector, Statutory Agencies, Elected Representatives and Communities of Interest. The establishment of the MRDATF gives all members of the Task Force a unique opportunity to work together in preparing and implementing an integrated strategy to address the issues relating to drug and alcohol use at midland region level.
