Radio 4’s ‘Shared Experience’ series discusses how addiction affects lives.
Simon Stephens, Director of Casework at Addictions UK, joined a discussion on Radio 4 this week about the experience of addiction.
Three people whose lives were taken over by alcohol, drugs and gambling share their story of how their addiction began and how their denial and the financial and health consequences affected them and the people around them. They talk about how easy it is to relapse.
For a few days now, the 30 minute programme is available to hear on the BBC “Falling Off The Wagon” web page
