What is The DARA Project?

The DARA Project is drug free Community Employment structured day programme for people in recovery from substance misuse.

It was first established in Sep 2013 and was identified through service user involvement as a need for Co. Kildare. It first operated in Kildare town, yet moved to Athy, Co. Kildare some years ago.

We provide a range of supports to people who have become drug free. We empower each person to reach their full potential. We believe that recovery from addiction is possible for all who seek it. We aim to support, empower and equip each person to live a drug free life. We endeavor to help all our participants become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.
