DAIL DEBATES

The Dail (Irish Parliament) is not currently not in session. Instead we are presenting a selection of useful websites and a link to the new Programme for Government

Elisad European Information Service
on Alcohol, Drugs and Addictions Gateway

Don't waste time looking elsewhere for European internet resources on drugs and addictions!
This addictions gateway is a free online service providing access to the best web resources in Europe on drugs, alcohol, smoking, gambling, and related topics.The gateway is searchable in 17 European languages. All the resources have been selected and evaluated by a network of subject specialists and information professionals from 27 institutions across Europe.
You can search it to:

• access information on education & prevention, treatment, policy, research and much more…
• identify resources in your own country,
• identify institutions in other countries,
• broaden your knowledge about European activities through a single source.

This tool has been built by Elisad, the European Association of Libraries and Information Services on Alcohol and other Drugs, with funding from the European Commission


June 21 2007

The new Programme for Government addresses the issue of drugs and alcohol under the following headings:
