    Coolmine Therapeutic Community believes that everyone should have the opportunity to overcome addiction and lead a fulfilled and productive life.

    Mission Statement

    Coolmine Therapeutic Community provides a range of quality community and residential services to empower people to end their dependence on drugs and alcohol

    We’ve been around a while

    Coolmine Therapeutic Community, established in 1973, was the first dedicated residential rehabilitation centre for drug users in Ireland. In the first seven years of our existence Coolmine remained a relatively small service and it was not until the major growth in heroin use in Dublin from 1980 onwards that Coolmine began to grow.

    Coolmine continues to respond to the changing patterns of drug use and to the needs of the wider community affected by drugs.

    Coolmine Therapeutic Community

    · Coolmine is Ireland’s longest established therapeutic community for alcohol and drug addiction.

    · Established in 1973 we accept clients from all over Ireland without prejudice to creed, ethnicity or social background.

    · We provide the only Mother and Child facility in the state for mothers in recovery. Children up to the age of 5 years can live with their mother while she attends treatment and they are cared for by professional child care workers.

    · We have 2 residential services based in Dublin 15 (male & female).

    · We have two day care programmes based in the city centre.

    · We provide aftercare for all of our clients and also a Family Support Group where parents, family members, relations and friends can attend weekly support groups.

    · In 2008 some 766 people accessed services at Coolmine
