Ex-Prisoners Integration and Change Group

Picture1Who is EPIC for?
The group is for anyone over 18 yrs who has been effected by addiction and has been in prison in the recent past. It is open to men and women primarily from the Rialto, Canals and Dublin 8 areas. However all applicants are welcome to apply where space is available. All participants should be stable enough to participate in the group.

Purpose of the group
The idea for the group grew out of Community Prison Links. Our primary goal is supporting those in addiction. Many ex-prisoners expressed the need for immediate support on leaving prison and especially a group that understands their needs. Because of this, we have trained a number of volunteer facilitators all of whom have been in prison at some stage in their lives. It will be a safe and confidential space based on openness and trust.

Our aims are:

  • Reduce the likelihood of ex-prisoners returning to prison, with particular focus on those recently released.
  • To strengthen individual’s ability to remain stable or detox and provide information and support to enable people make healthy choices in the lives and offer referrals where necessary.

How do I apply?
Anyone interested in joining the group simply needs to contact Moyra or Gerry on the numbers below. An initial short interview and assessment will take place to check people’s suitability for the group and explain how the group runs and offer a chance for you to ask any questions. All going well participants may start immediately.
