“I believe that all addictions can be traced to painful experiences. Hurt is at the centre of all addictive behaviours…. adverse experiences directly shape our psychology.” Gabor Mate

As a result, addiction may be used as a coping mechanism to self soothe. The staff at STAR Ballymun respond to this through its trauma based care approach. This approach is based upon the following key principles: respect, safety, connection, choice, transparency and hope.
