Video: Beyond heroin – A story of loss and hope
Watch our video about parents dealing with their twin sons’ addiction
Nobody ever thinks they’ll become an addict – it’s something that happens to other people. In this extremely candid interview, Elizabeth Burton-Phillips, author of ‘Mum, Can You Lend Me Twenty Quid?’, and her husband, Tony, speak openly about the gradual descent of their identical twin sons into the nightmare of heroin addiction.
This film features clips from ‘Getting Hooked’, a home video in which one of the twins describes how easily he and his brother slipped into addiction.
