WHERE WE ARE
Located at 16 Bridgecourt Office Park, Walkinstown Avenue, Dublin 12.
WHAT WE DO
WGRC aims to support individuals with substance use problems to reduce/modify and/or stop their substance use behaviours through the use of evidence-based treatment interventions for substance use behaviours and supporting service users to identify progression routes to re-integrate into mainstream activities/society.
The WGRC provides supports to the families (over 18) of the individuals with the substance use problem to cope with the problems and issues that often face families living with addiction.
Our therapeutic interventions consist of. counselling and complementary therapies for teenagers and adults with addiction and their family members. These services are also available to members of our local communities that seek support for life issues such as stress, loss and bereavement.
Our recent work
Over the past two years we have provided one to one interventions for more than two hundred people. For example eighty four people that are affected by addiction. Our service for teenagers engaged fifty six children (between the ages of thirteen and eighteen) for one to one counselling. The parents of these teenagers also get a support service. For children under thirteen we supported therapeutic interventions at a specialist agency for nineteen children.
We have also provided counselling for fifty one members of our local that sought support for life issues such as stress, loss and bereavement.

Many of our referrals come by word of mouth from other users of our services. Others come as referrals from e.g. GP’s, Health Care Professionals, Social Workers, Home School Liaison Officers and local Gardai.
