A new bereavement support service for those affected by drug-related deaths is being launched in the north inner city.
The centre will be run by the National Family Support Network, which is calling for more services like it to be opened up.
According to a new report from the group, there is a huge level of grief, isolation and stigma that families face after the loss of a loved one through drug and alcohol misuse.
The centre is the first of it's kind in Ireland and will provide support and advocacy for affected families.
Spokesperson Susie Grace says relatives of those who die from drug or alcohol addiction need more support.
"People hear that a drug user has died, and you will often hear throw-away remarks like 'he or she is dead now they're problems are over', but often their problems are only beginning", she said.
Anyone who has been affected by a drug related death in their family and would like support can call 01-8980148 or log-on to www.fsn.ie.
