Today’s guest is on a mission to transform the way we view people addicted to drugs. This year, Professor Dame Carol Black led a government review into the way we handle drug addiction in this country – be that treatment and recovery, or even prevention. She called for a more health-based approach and more than £500 million investment over five years.

This Addiction Awareness Week, Bryony has teamed up with Action on Addiction and the Forward Trust to bring you a conversation each day tackling a different element of addiction. Because even though we are slowly breaking down the stigma around discussing mental health, addiction – sadly – remains a taboo, even though we will all know someone touched by it.

Dame Carol tells Bryony why alcohol is “just as dangerous” as other drugs, why she feels addiction should be treated as a chronic health condition, and explains why the current system is “broken”.

You can find more information about organisations that offer free and confidential support at the end of this episode.
