Over the last couple of years, BHT’s Addiction Services have noticed an increase in the number of ‘second generation’ addicts.  They were children who grew up with one, or both, parents with a severe alcohol and/or drug problem.  They often suffered extreme neglect and, in most cases, severe trauma.

The nature of the work that we do at both the Detox Support Project and at the Recovery Project is to help clients to address safely the legacy of their core needs being unmet as children.  By doing so, we reduce the chances of those issues becoming triggers for relapse, and they are able to rebuild their lives with the skills and self-belief they were not given as children.

Brendon is a 31-year old alcohol and cocaine addict who recently completed treatment within our Addiction Services.  This is history.
