History

Abbey Regional Addiction Service (ARAS) was established in 2008 as a result of two organisations merging, Kildare West Wicklow Community Addiction Team (KWWCAT) and the Abbey Project.

The company known now as Kildare West Wicklow Community Addiction Service Limited (KWWCAS), trading as ARAS  was originally set up by the South Western Region Drugs and Alcohol Task Force (SWRDATF), to work with drug users and their families, and to develop high quality, professional treatment and rehabilitation services.
