Breakthru was founded in 1996 and has established itself as a leading organization in the field of substance misuse in Northern Ireland.

We take an innovative approach to the many issues linked to substance misuse and the promotion of general health and wellbeing. Underpinning all the work of Breakthru is the belief that everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity and that everyone deserves to be armed with accurate, up to date information so they are able to make informed decisions about lifestyle choices.

The Future

Future development is both challenging and exciting with legislation around tendering and the current economic climate affecting available funding streams. In November we embarked upon a series of Think Tank Sessions with Partner organisations, Stakeholders, service users and young people. While there were many great ideas and suggestions the following have been adopted immediately with further developments planned.


Breakthru is now in its 22nd year and the 2017 report is testament to the extent and breadth of the work which continues to be delivered by a dedicated and committed team of Directors, management, staff and volunteers.

Hi folks,

We are having a Christmas raffle to try and gather some much needed funds.

Tickets are available to buy from the main building and the outreach centre in the town. If anyone wishes to donate any food items toward the hamper that would be great. All proceeds go to Breakthru. 


Draw will take place Friday, 14th December 2018

Thank you for your continued support from all at Breakthru.
