Executive Summary

 
This research examines the links between homelessness and drug use and the nature of drug use amongst the homeless population in Tallaght. It also explores the reasons behind their homelessness; examines the policies and practices of local authorities in relation to the housing of homeless drug users; and explores the experiences of homeless drug users with special reference to the policies and practices of homeless services. Primary among the recommendations made by the research is the need to recognise the links between homelessness and drug use at policy and service delivery levels.
