Posted on: 06 Sep 2023

The second Podcast as part of the You Choices Matter programme is with Wayne From Derbyshire. The programme is all about helping people who are in recovery from a depend on drugs and alcohol to find help and support.

As we learn in this interview, the process of recovery starts with honesty, an acknowledgement of the issue and starting to confront the significant challenge of addiction.

This is a truly authentic, sometimes sad and raw but definitely no holes barred summary of living a life battling against the addiction to alcohol and the impact that has on all aspects of a person's life.
