A journey into and out of heroin addiction - Part 2

In my last Background Briefing, we began the story of Lydia’s journey into addiction. In this Briefing, we hand over to the imaginary character of Lydia, to explain how addiction took control of her life, and her first experiences of treatment.

“Trying to juggle being in treatment and getting enough money for my heroin habit was really difficult. My days were taken up with being at the treatment centre, so I had to take risks to get money in the evenings. It was becoming increasingly difficult, but I couldn’t see a way out. I felt like I was losing even more control of my life.”
