Addiction: An animation
This video is adapted from Johann Hari's New York Times best-selling book 'Chasing The Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs.'
In 2017 we began a Creative Writing Class. Facilitated by Barbara Bergin, it involved six people who use our service from St Theresa’s Gardens. Through a carful and safe path Barbara guided them down a treasure of memories, some good and some not so good. What resulted is a well-crafted, insightful edited audio piece entitled “Our Domain”.
