Working with approximately 26,000 people every year, Addaction helps them and their families rebuild their lives after drug and alcohol misuse.

Involvement in film

For EastEnders we provided expert advice about characteristics and behaviours associated with crack cocaine addiction. One of our staff attended a script-writing session and the filming of the episodes to ensure that the subject of addiction was appropriately and accurately portrayed. For BBC3 we are providing case studies, research and testamonials as content for their research purposes.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
