Kilbarrack Coast Community Programme 
The Kilbarrack Coast Community Programme was established in response to the increasing use of drugs in the Kilbarrack area. Our emphasis is on a quality user-led service for drug users in recovery. Training and development is considered as an essential part of recovery. The Kilbarrack Coast Community Programme (KCCP) was established to cater for those who were attending for treatment but were looking for further supports to help their re-integration into the community.
KCCP has a three pronged strategy-it works with those people who have become involved with drugs and their families, it works with the young people in the area and it strives to be involved in Community Development initiatives.
The core work is conducted through a Community Employment Programme, which caters for 19+ recovering drug misusers.

After Care Programme
K.C.C.P's structured rehabilitation programme is a community based aftercare project providing education, training,personal development, counselling , and support enabling participants to meet the challenges involved in recovery from drug use.
The rehabilitation programme aims to meet individual needs. Individual programme plans are designed with each participant to help identify and achieve their goals. K.C.C.P. recognizes that recovery from drug misuse requires a creative diverse approach and to this end works in conjunction with other statutory, voluntary and community bodies.

The AfterCare Programme is a Fàs Community Employment Scheme, all the normal eligibility criteria for participation on CE schemes applies. However there is no age restriction and persons over 18 years of age can apply.

With the appointment of a rehabilitation manager (IACP)  and an addiction counsellor (IAAAC) we are able to link in with young people (under 18's with parental consent) and provide one to one counselling.
