Cuan Mhuire is focused on healing the harm addiction causes to individuals, their families and communities. Our residential services are open to all men and women over the age of 18".

"In addition, Cuan Mhuire Newry is actively involved in the prevention of Alcohol, Gambling and other Addictions. It has developed an ‘Outreach Programme’ to meet the needs of school children, young adults, parents and other concerned groups. It is facilitated and co-ordinated by qualified addiction counsellors and support workers. 

"We travel across Northern Ireland & the border counties to educate young adults and children on the risks associated with alcohol and gambling addiction, such as mental and physical health problems, anti-social behaviour, homelessness and unemployment. We deliver information on the services we provide and what help is available both from ourselves and elsewhere. Finally we invite students and community groups to visit our centre for group discussions and see our services at first hand".
