About Us

Can people get back in control of their lives from addictions and other personal problems?   It is possible and support and help may be needed in many cases.   Counselling and therapy is available.    It means picking up the phone and making that call.   You can do it.
Aisling Group International Charity was founded in 1988, with its head office based in County Meath. It was established as a direct response to the need for information and help for the public, relating to the negative effects from drugs and alcohol misuse.

In the intervening years Aisling's expertise and services have evolved. Aisling Group International is now respected for its work nationally and internationally and has received a number of awards. Its links extend globally into countries such as Australia, USA, Sweden, to name a few. It is a member of the European Federation of Therapeutic Communities.

Aisling Group International is a registered Charity and has a voluntary Management Committee. Aisling supports the UN conventions on narcotics and endeavours to reduce the demand for drugs. It supports the UN rulings on Children and Human Rights. In recent times the Charity was awarded the All Islands Special Endeavour Awards presented by President Mary McAleese.

Statutory and non-statutory organisations contact Aisling Group International for advice and help. On many occasions the founder, Marie Byrne, has been invited to speak at conferences and at many diverse venues. These conferences include ones organised by An Garda Siochana, ECAD (European Cities Against Drugs), consisting of the councils of Europe and LAMA (Local Authority Members Association).
