RADE seeks to engage drug users with the arts and therapeutic supports and provide a platform for their artistic expression. There are currently 21 participants involved in our programmes of art, drama, creative writing, film, tai chi and relapse prevention.

RADE also offers an on-site counselling service. The organisation’s programmes involve some of Ireland’s leading contemporary artists across all art forms. ¬†Artists work closely with participants guiding them through the processes of awareness, creativity and discovery that are at the core of the arts and expression.


The task force funds a Project Worker and a Counsellor and provides materials funding for film projects.
