The Rise Foundation
Supporting families with loved ones in addiction
The RISE Foundation currently runs non-residential Family Programmes in a number of counties around Ireland and a 1 to 1 Counselling Service in Dublin and Kilkenny with a team of experienced addiction counsellors.

These services are available to people from all communities throughout the island of Ireland.
