Welcome to Turas!
We are a Dundalk-based registered not-for-profit providing a range of free, confidential supports to people at all stages of addiction.
We understand how difficult it can be to acknowledge the impact an addiction can have on your life so we aim to create a warm, trustful and non-judgemental environment where you can feel safe, understood and listened to.
Words from our clients:
“Simply put, I would not be living the life I am without the help Turas have given me. The support and help from the staff have enabled me to stop drinking and live an alcohol- free life to the full.” – Jacinta
“I’d really lost myself, my joy, my identity to a certain degree and was using alcohol as a coping method to deal with all the stress in my life.
The counsellors are so kind, and when you are at your lowest kindness means so much. No judgement, listening without prejudice (to quote George Michael!), teaching me coping skills, I truly am indebted to all of them.
They are the most wonderful people doing a job that changes lives. Mine has changed so much and for that I am so grateful.” – Helen
“I couldn’t have don’t this myself and I couldn’t have stayed sober without the support and tools that I learned. I’m tearful today as I’ve just finished my last appointment with Patricia but I am also reassured. I know that I now have a strong foundation for recovery.” – Jason
We are currently open via telephone and accepting new referrals. We are mostly working remotely but someone is in the office everyday to answer the phone and if a face-to-face appointment is needed we can arrange it. Please call 042 9338221 if you would like support...
