This is a memoir of Laura’s late brother who was a regular at Colchester STaRS and Open Road. It is an account of how ordinary people can become trapped into addiction and not find their way out. As well as fond memories, humour and some unavoidable moments of grief the book contains useful and empathetic support and advice for relatives and friends.

Best of all, proceeds from sales go to Open Road for their ongoing recovery work.
